§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he received a series of resolutions passed at a public meeting organised by the United Irish League at Woodford, county Galway, on May 13th, which contained incitements to boycotting and intimidation; whether a police shorthand writer was present at the meeting; and whether his notes of the speech of the Rev. P. M'Loughlin, who presided, have been submitted to the law officers of the Crown, with a view to legal proceedings being taken.
I have received a newspaper report containing resolutions which purport to have been passed at the meeting referred to. I am informed that no police shorthand writer was present at the meeting, and that no occasion arose for consulting the law officers of the Crown.
