MR. J. P. FARRBLL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the attention of the Royal Irish Constabulary authorities in Granard has been called to the conduct of Thomas Gillespie, a bailiff on the Dopping-Hepenstal Estate; whether he is aware that this man recently and without any legal warrant forcibly dispossessed three men of their turbary on the Larkfield Bog, and threatened with a revolver any person who interfered with him; and, if so, will he say what action the police authorities intend taking to safeguard the public peace in this district.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The bailiff did not forcibly disposses those tenants of their turbary. He cautioned them against trespassing. He was not armed with a revolver. The police will take all steps requisite for the preservation of the public peace.
