§ MR. E. ROBERTSON (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Attorney General whether his attention has been called to the statement, in the Eastern Daily Press, of 26th May, by the Rev. Dr. Jessop, Rector of Scarning, to the effect that three of his parishioners had been dismissed from employment by the managers of the Great Eastern Railway, under pressure from the Farmers' Alliance; and whether, as the facts stated appear to disclose a primâ facie case of criminal conspiracy on the part of the Alliance, he can undertake that an inquiry will be made with a view of ascertaining their true character?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir RICHARD WEBSTER,) Isle of Wight
The question of the hon. and learned Member has not given me sufficient information to enable me to answer it. If he will give me further particulars I will make inquiry on the matter.
