§ * THE MARQUESS OF LANSDOWNE
I beg to ask a Question of the noble Marquess of which I have given him private notice. A telegram is to be seen in the next room—Rioting still continues in Belfast. One woman has been fatally shot by the firing of the troops. The injured and wounded number hundreds, and the hospitals are full.I wish to ask the noble Marquess whether he has any information bearing upon the subject.
§ THE LORD PRIVY SEAL (The Marquess of RIPON)
I regret to say I have seen the telegraphic statement that has been published, but there is no information corroborative of the facts at the Irish Office.
