HC Deb 29 May 1907 vol 174 c1649

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. 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.
