asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies (1) if he is aware of the facts which led up to the death of Mrs. W. J. Talbot, of Mount Talbot, County Roscommon, on 9th or 10th April; if so, will he state these facts and say what action the Government have taken in connection with them;

(2) If he is aware of the facts as to the forcible ejectment from their holdings of a number of Protestants in the parish of Tinahoe, Queen's County, in the course of the last few days; and, if so, will he state these facts and say what action the Government have taken in connection with them?

I regret that I have not yet received from the Provisional Government the information for which I have asked regarding this matter and the matter referred to in the hon. and gallant Member's next question, and I am therefore again under the necessity of asking him to put both questions down again for a later date. As regards the hon. and gallant Member's second question, however, I would refer to the answer which I gave earlier to-day in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Kirk dale.

As it appears to be quite futile to put down a question on a subject of this sort, I do not propose to put it down again.
