§ Mr. CHARLES CRAIG
asked the Chief Secretary whether it was acting under his instructions that Head Constable Oats visited the offices of the "Clare Champion" and warned the editor that if he contiued to publish intimidatory matter he would be prosecuted; whether the warning has had any effect on the editor in respect of publication of the matter complained of; and whether he proposes to take any further action in the matter?1291W
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The head constable was acting under instructions from the Irish Government in conveying a warning to the editor of the "Clare Champion." No publication of intimidatory matter in the newspaper in question has come under the notice of the police since the date of the warning, nor does any further action seem to toe necessary at present.
