HC Deb 04 August 1904 vol 139 cc990-1
MR. DOOGAN (Tyrone, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the rev. Father M'Brien, Washing Bay, and a party of friends, were insulted and threatened by an Orange crowd when driving to Cookstown on Sunday last; that, notwithstanding the fact that this circumstance was duly reported to the police, no notice was taken of it, with the result that on their return journey Father M'Brien and his friends were hooted and stoned; and, if so, will he explain why the police did not afford the rev. Father M'Brien any protection, 'and will the ringleaders of his assailants be prosecuted.


I am making further inquiries in this matter and will thank the hon. Member to defer the Question until Monday next.
