§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Union Jack which was flying from the Orange Hall in Trillick on the 12th instant, was hauled down and destroyed; and whether, in view of the fact that the 757 police were in the vicinity, he can state Ireland if, in view of the fact that Irish if any arrests were made.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) There was a small dance in the Orange Hall on the date mentioned, the music at which was supplied by two Roman Catholics. The flag was subsequently found at the door of the hall torn, but on the 14th instant it was replaced on the hall. The police have been unable to ascertain by whom the flag was taken down.
