HC Deb 01 March 1901 vol 90 cc194-5
*MR. HEMPHILL (Tyrone, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the case of two brothers named Morris, who were lately sentenced to one month's imprisonment, with hard labour, at the petty sessions of Plumbridge, North Tyrone, though they themselves had been assaulted and beaten by the complainants, on the occasion which was the subject of the order; and whether he can state if a memorial on their behalf has been presented to the Lord Lieutenant; and, if so, when will his decision in the matter be made known.


The discharge of the two prisoners referred to in this question was ordered by the Lord Lieutenant on Wednesday last.
