§ MR. MOORE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state the results of his inquiry into the case of Mr. Larkin, J.P., who was under police surveillance for extradition to the United States for an offence committed there; and will he say for what offence was this man convicted at the assizes.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I have already informed the hon. and learned Member that Mr. Larkin was not extradited to the United States, and I have now ascertained that no application for his extradition was ever made. I can make no statement as to his having been under police surveillance with a view to extradition. Mr. Larkin was convicted at Wicklow Assizes about nineteen years ago, and sentenced to six months imprisonment upon a charge of conspiracy to compel a certain person to give up a farm.
