§ MR. O'DOHERTY (Donegal, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been called to the charge delivered by his honour Judge Cooke to the grand jury at Lifford, county Donegal, whereby he testified to the entire absence of crime throughout the county; and whether, on account of the crimeless condition of the county for years past, he will consider the revocation of The Peace Preservation (Ireland) Act, 1881, at present in force in portions of the county.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The Government do not consider it desirable to revoke the Proclamation of portions of this county under the provisions of the Act mentioned.
