HC Deb 20 October 1899 vol 77 c381
MR. P. A. M'HUGH (Leitrim, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether it is a fact that a receiver, named Hewson, on the Montgomery estate, County Leitrim, recently instructed a bailiff, named Hetherington, to inform Mrs. O'Donnel, the wife of an evicted tenant now undergoing an unlimited term of imprisonment for alleged contempt of court, that if she does not leave the evicted farm the Land Judge will imprison her; and is a receiver authorised in such a case to use as a threat the anticipated action of a judge.


It has been found necessary to communicate in this matter with the receiver, Mr. Hewson, and pending his reply I must ask the hon. Member to postpone the question.
