HC Deb 19 November 1906 vol 165 c379
MR. BARRIE (Londonderry, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to a placard published last week in Roscommon and district, calling upon the Nationalists of Kilbride to support the claims of the several evicted tenants of Roxborough lands, and to secure that no grazier should lay claim to the lands from which their fathers and their predecessors had been ruthlessly evicted; whether he is aware that as a result of the publication of this placard, a gathering assembled, and that the district inspector of constabulary refused to allow the meeting to be held in the vicinity of the Roxborough lands, and that the meeting was subsequently held at Clownan Bridge; and will he say what action he intends to take to prevent the intended boycotting.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce) I am informed by the police authorities that the facts are substantially as stated in the Question No intimidatory language was used at the meeting referred to, and no boycotting has taken place in connection with the matter. The police will perform their duty of maintaining the peace.
