§ MR. JAMES O'KELLY (Roscommon, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the bog bailiff on the Tredennick estate, in county Roscommon, poisoned the bog which surround the lands of about 250 tenants; that he gave neither notice or warning; and will he take steps to prevent such action in the future.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I am informed by the police authorities that the local police are aware that a rumour to the effect mentioned in the Question has been current in the locality, but that they have been unable to discover any foundation in fact for this rumour.
