§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the petty sessions court house at Pettigo is used for the holding of the monthly meetings of the Orange Lodge; by whose authority has this court house, the rent of which is paid by the ratepayers, been appropriated for this purpose; and, whether immediate steps will be taken to prohibit future meetings of Orange lodges in this court house?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have called for a Report on the facts, as alleged in this Question, but not having yet received it, perhaps the hon. and learned Member will repeat the Question to-morrow.
