HC Deb 09 June 1902 vol 109 cc103-4

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that, at the last fair in Millstreet, a young man named Williams, the son of an evicted tenant in the locality, was followed wherever he went by two policemen, and that the evicted tenant is subjected to similar treatment; and, seeing that the town and district of Millstreet are free from crime, can he explain why the movements of these men are watched by the police.


Yes, Sir; these men were under police supervision on the occasion mentioned, because there was good reason to believe they were engaged in the illegal practices of boycotting and intimidation.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that at the recent quarter sessions, the County Court judge had no criminal business before him?

[No answer was returned.]
