HC Deb 16 July 1902 vol 111 c362

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that many of the Orange processionists at Warren-point, County Down, on Saturday, discharged firearms along the line of route, that two women were shot, and that at least two civilians, together with three constables, had narrow escapes, and will he say whether it is intended to take any, and if so, what steps to prevent a I recurrence of such incidents arising from the carrying of firearms.

(Answered by the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.) A number of I shots were fired by the excursionists. Two women were wounded at Newry. One arrest has been made. The question of discharging firearms from railway trains on the occasion of party excursions is engaging consideration.
