§ MR. DELANY (Queen's Co., Ossory)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any decision has yet been come to by the Government as to whether the venue of the trial will be changed in the case of the Orangemen prosecuted in connection with the Annaghmore riots, County Armagh; and whether the Crown intends to challenge any jurors at the trial.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
At my right hon. friend's request I will reply to this Question. The accused will be tried at Armagh Assizes. The Crown will there follow the rule observed in all other cases, namely, take such steps as may be considered necessary to secure an impartial trial.
