§ SIR W. LAWSON (Cumberland, Cockermouth)
Can any Member of the Government give the House information as to the Belfast riots?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
Mr. Speaker, since yesterday evening, at eight o'clock, so far as the information which the Government have received goes, there have been no new disturbances.
§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
On my putting a question early this morning, we were informed that everything was perfectly peaceable; but, on reading the morning papers, I find that there were disturbances at eight and at eleven o'clock. Can the Government explain that?
§ MR. ATKINSON
The explanation is that I informed the honourable Member that I had no further information than what appeared in the Irish morning papers, which were published some hours before the disturbances at eight o'clock commenced.
§ House adjourned at 5.55.
