HC Deb 19 March 1906 vol 154 cc94-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that at Donemana, North Tyrone, on Saturday night, March 10th, the Protestant Flute Band, while on parade, were attacked by Nationalists, who threw stones and other missiles at the bandsmen, and what steps are being taken by the police to put a stop to mob interference with peaceably disposed people and the destruction of property in this district.


The police are doing everything which may be possible to preserve the peace at Donemana, where, unfortunately, Party feeling has recently become excited. The information which I have received does not agree with the allegations in the Question, but as proceedings are being taken against certain persons in connection with the disturbance of the 10th inst, it is better not to make any statement while the matter is sub judice.
