HC Deb 16 February 1899 vol 66 cc1096-7

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Thomas Brady, of Ballinaglera, county Leitrim, who was convicted at the last Carrick Assizes for firing a revolver at a boy named M'Hugh, and bound to the peace for two years and to come up for judgment when called on, and since then was convicted at Dowra at the suit of the Excise for carrying a gun without a licence; had he then a licence under the Arms Act, and where was it granted; and, seeing that this man is frequently in possession of firearms while in a condition that makes him a danger to the public peace, will he explain why he has never been prosecuted by the police?


I have not yet completed my inquiries in this case, and will ask the honourable and learned Member to postpone it for a few days.
