§ MR. LEWIS
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is true that another sum of £172 6s. 3d. for extra police for the half-year ended 31st March last has become due from the Limerick Corporation; whether, at the Limerick Town Council meeting held on the 4th instant, a Town Councillor, in moving the rejection of the claim, remarked that he thought—The Government were not serious, otherwise Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Parnell were playing a game between them over the matter;and whether the Government will any longer abstain enforcing against the Corporation the judgment obtained in the proper Court of Law?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I understand the facts as to a further sum having become due from the Limerick Corporation and as to the observations thereon of one of the Town Councillors are as stated in the Question. There is no change in the intention of the Government since I last answered a Question on this subject by the hon. Member.
