§ MR. MOORE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that the Mr. Larkin, J.P., who has been cautioned by the Lord Chancellor, was at one time under police surveillance with a view to extradition to the United States for an offence committed there, and that this man was also convicted at the assizes for an offence committed in Ireland; and if the Government propose to continue this man in the commission of the peace.
§ MR. BIRRELL
Mr. Larkin is a justice of the peace, under the provisions of the Local Government Act, 1898, by virtue of his chairmanship of a rural district council. The Government have no information that Mr. Larkin is under any disqualification by reason of his having been convicted of a criminal offence. He was not extradited to the United States for any offence
