I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any report has been received from the Edgworthstown Police Station as to a disturbance created in the townland of Lisnanagh, county Longford, by the two emergency men guarding the evicted farms there; is he aware that one of them bombarded the house for several hours with stones, and was only prevented from committing further excesses by the arrival of the police; and will any steps be taken to bring these disturbers of the public peace to justice for such conduct.

The hon. Member has been misinformed. The occurrences referred to in the first and second paragraphs did not take place.

I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that I have not been misinformed, but he has by his subordinates.
