HC Deb 04 July 1907 vol 177 c880
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that, at a trial of twelve men indicted for unlawful assembly at the Tullamore assizes on Tuesday, it was given in evidence that two farmers had given up grazing farms in consequence of pressure exercised upon thorn by the local branch of the United Irish League; and whether he intends to take proceedings against the United Irish League.


I am not in possession of the details of the evidence which was given in the case referred to. My right hon. friend the Attorney-General for Ireland conducted the prosecution in person, and will doubtless consider whether further proceedings should be taken as the result of the evidence which was given in the case. The Attorney-General is still engaged at assizes.
