§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether 27 he is aware that Judge Carton received white gloves at the recent Ennis Quarter Sessions; and whether, in view of the peaceable state of the County Clare, the proclamation of certain districts under the Criminal Law and Procedure (Ireland) Act will now be withdrawn.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
It is somewhat irregular to make a statement in anticipation of a more official announcement. But since the hon. Member postponed his Question at my request, perhaps I may say that action is contemplated in the direction which he favours.
