HC Deb 09 June 1898 vol 58 c1169
MR. AUSTIN (Limerick, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland why, in the case of the Queen v. Thomas and Patrick Harrigan, at Askeaton Petty Sessions on 10th May, the charge in the summons was altered on the morning of hearing by District Inspector Webster from that of unlawful assault and wounding to that of common assault, and why the medical certificate was withheld from the magistrates?


I have not yet completed my inquiries in reference to this matter, and will ask the honourable Member to repeat the Question to-morrow.
