HC Deb 19 June 1907 vol 176 c477

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to two cases heard in the King's Bench Division last week in Dublin, in which the civil bill officers declared that they wore unable to serve any writs in their respective districts, owing to the fact that writs wore forcibly taken from them and that they had been subject to violence; whether his attention has been called to the orders made by Mr. Justice Johnson and Mr. Justice Wright allowing service to be effected by Totter; and whether, having had experience of the illtreatment received by postmen in the same district in the past, he will afford full police protection to these postmen upon whom the duty will devolve of delivering the letters containing those writs.


The reply to each part of the Question is in the affirmative.
