HC Deb 13 May 1908 vol 188 cc1148-9

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any instructions have been issued by the executive to the effect that in cases of cattle-driving and other agrarian offences where arrests are made, that the prisoners are only to be bound over to keep the peace and not to be more severely dealt with pending the passage through this House of the Irish Universities Bill; and whether he will now adopt more stringent methods to vindicate the law in Ireland and secure the lives and property of law-abiding persons.


No, Sir.
