HL Deb 11 June 1880 vol 252 cc1749-50

moved for— A Return of all cases of murder, maiming, or injury to the person since the last Spring Assizes, for which claim for compensation has been made under the Peace Preservation (Ireland) Act, which has recently expired; and asked how Her Majesty's Government proposes to meet such claims?


said, he believed there would be no objection to giving the Return asked for. As to the latter part of the Question, it would be quite impossible for the Government to meet any such claims for compensation. It was not legal for them to do so.

Motion agreed to.

Return ordered to be laid before the House.

House adjourned at Eight o'clock, to Monday next, Eleven o'clock.
