§ MR. JOYCE (Limerick)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland will he say why the authorities have thought it necessary to station an extra police force in Glanquin Cordfair, county Clare; whether he is aware that the police have acted as herdsmen on the Glanquin farm, and have assisted in cutting and saving hay there; and, if so, has their action received his sanction; and will he state why the police have searched the houses of Nationalists for arms, and on what information have they acted in so doing.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
A police hut is about to be erected in this locality for the better preservation of the public peace. The police have not acted as herdsmen, nor have they assisted in cutting or saving hay. Two houses in the vicinity were searched for arms with the consent of the occupants in each case.
