§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the members of the Dublin Police Force who, within the last two days, tore down placards announcing a public meeting, convened by the Lord Mayor, to consider the Proclamation of the National League by the Lord Lieu 1533 tenant, did so in pursuance of instructions from the Irish Government?
THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN)(who replied) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
said: There has been no interference whatever by the Dublin police with the placards referred to, save in one instance, where one of the placards was posted on the door of College Street Police Station. The police on duty removed this placard as soon as it was discovered, in accordance with the Police Regulations, which prohibit the posting on police premises of any notices except those required by law.
