HC Deb 28 October 1908 vol 195 c288

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what is the number of persons returned as boycotted during the past two years who were, in addition, the victims of overt outrage; and will he indicate the acts of outrage committed in each case without specifying the names of the individuals attacked.


During the past two years indictable offences were committed against sixty-one persons who were the subject of boycotting or attempts to boycott. The offences were as follows: Firing at the person, eight cases; firing into dwellings, fourteen; incendiary fires, nine; killing or maiming cattle, four; injury to property, fourteen; larceny, six; intimidation by threatening letters, twenty-four; intimidation by other means, nine.
