§ MR. DELANY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state on what basis he formed the calculation that, with regard to offences against the public peace, omitting threatening letters and notices, only 23 per cent. of those enumerated in the recent Parliamentary Return occurred in Ulster.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
The total number of offences against the public peace in Ireland, omitting threatening letters and notices, is fifty-seven. The similar number for Ulster is thirteen. Thirteen is 22.8 per cent. of 57.
§ MR. MACVEAGH
The right hon. Gentleman is wrong. The Question was not about Belfast, but about Ulster.
