§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state the number of times recently that the stock of Mr. Luttrell have been driven off his farm at Roscomroe; how many police are stationed in the neighbourhood; and whether he will see that a sufficient force is provided to check the lawless acts of agitators who desire to dispossess Mr. Luttrell of his lands.
§ MR. BIRRELL
Mr. Luttrell's cattle were driven off his farm on two occasions, namely, 30th April and 18th May, and proceedings are being taken against a number of persons in each of these cases. Since the 22nd instant, a police force consisting of a district inspector and twenty-five men has been encamped on the farm for the purpose of preventing further interference with the cattle. The farm is remote from a police station, the two nearest stations being six and seven miles away.
