HC Deb 11 February 1895 vol 30 cc442-3
MR. J. J. CLANCY (Dublin, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether his attention has been directed to the threatened encroachments on certain public rights of way in the neighbourhood of Sutton and Howth, in the county of Dublin, by Mr. Andrew Jameson; and, whether he will consult the Attorney-General for Ireland with a view to his intervention on behalf of the public in the legal proceedings which Mr. Jameson has instituted for the purpose of legalising the encroachments referred to?


Mr. Jameson appears to have instituted proceedings in the Land Court, Ireland, which may have the effect of establishing certain rights claimed by him, and disputed by some of the inhabitants of Howth and Sutton. The Crown, I am advised, are not entitled to intervene in those proceedings, nor does there seem to be precedent for it.
