HC Deb 19 June 1907 vol 176 c481
MR. HADDOCK (Lancashire, North Lonsdale)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, after the promised inquiry, he can now inform the House what was the nature of the amicable arrangement entered into between the owner and the local tenants of the Muckland farm, near Ballimore Bridge, which prevented arrests being made in connection with the cattle-driving incident on 1st May.


I am informed that Messrs. Hughes gave a promise in writing to surrender the farms in November next, provided that they should receive compensation when the estate should be sold, and that their sons should each be given a holding when the farms should be divided.
