HC Deb 13 May 1901 vol 93 cc1474-5

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, considering that the quarterly Returns of Agrarian Outrages in Ireland show infinitesimal results, His Majesty's Government will direct the discontinuance of these Returns, and place the statistics of rimes in Ireland on the same footing as in England and Scotland.


These Returns have been presented to Parliament for many years, and it is not proposed to discontinue them. The general statistics of crimes in Ireland are annually laid on the Table, and are practically identical in form and classification with those for England and Scotland.
