§ MR. LONSDALE
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.

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.
