§ Mr. LONSDALE
asked the Chief Secretary whether he was aware that a meeting of the Gurteen branch, county Sligo, United Irish League, expressed its opinion that any person occupying any portion of Mr. M'Dermott's land in Lisbally was a grabber of the worst type and would be treated as such; and what steps he proposed to take to prevent men placed on the land by the Congested Districts Board, which had striped it off, from being subjected to intimidation?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The meeting referred to took place indoors, and the police are not therefore in a position to say what happened at it. The police will give every protection which may be necessary to persons placed on the land by the Congested Districts Board.
