HC Deb 20 January 1902 vol 101 cc321-2
EARL PERCY (Kensington, S.)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, whether his attention has been called to the proceedings of this House on 21st July, 1856, on 13th July, 1891, and on11th February, 1892, in respect of Members for whose arrest a warrant had been issued; and whether he intends to make a Motion ordering that Mr. Arthur Lynch do attend the House upon a future day.


In answer to my noble friend I have to say that, as the House is aware (for I made a statement on Friday last), steps will be taken to arrest the Member for Galway as soon as he lands on these shores. The precedents to which my noble friend calls my attention have been considered; they are not quite on all fours with the present case, and I do not think any statement of the course we ought to pursue is at present advisable.
