HC Deb 14 May 1902 vol 108 c197
MR. DELANY (Queen's Co., Ossory)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the President of the Belfast Protestant Association is at present serving a sentence of imprisonment for organising riots in Belfast; and whether, in view of the speeches delivered at a recent meeting of that body, he proposes to allow it to continue its operations.


There is no truth in the statement in the first part of the Question. The second part presumably refers to a speech to which I alluded in my reply to a previous Question on Monday last.‡


Then may I ask what position is held in this Association by Mr. Arthur Trew, who is now in prison?


I have no knowledge. But he is not the President.
