§ MR. P. J. O'BRIEN (Tipperary, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant a question of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether his attention has been called to a paragraph in the Dublin Daily Independent of Monday last from a Nenagh correspondent, stating that a public meeting which was to have been held on the previous Sunday at a place six miles from Nenagh for the purpose of denouncing a glaring case of Land-grabbing had been suppressed by an order issued the night previous, and that a large body of police prevented the meeting being held; and whether there is any foundation for the report?
MR. J. MORLEY
I have not received my hon. Friend's private communication, but to the best of my belief there is no foundation for the report. I am not quite sure, but I think not.
