§ Mr. MacCAW
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman is aware that on the night of 24th July a cow belonging to John Walsh, of Glin, county Limerick, was mutilated, and two hay machines, the property of the Knight of Glin, were broken and portions of them carried away; and whether the police are taking proceedings against the perpetrators of these acts?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I am informed by the constabulary authorities that the statements in the question are correct. The police have not as yet been able to trace the persons who committed the offences.
