§ MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid)
I Leg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the boycotting during the past half-year of persons in the Riverstown district of county Sligo because they refused to join the United Irish League; and whether any Executive action has been taken, or is to be taken, to put a stop to the systematic intimidation practised upon these individuals.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. CHERRY,) Liverpool, Exchange
The Government has taken, and will take all possible steps to afford protection to any persons in the district who may require it, and the police force in the district has been largely reinforced with that object. As a prosecution is pending it is not desirable to make any further statement.
