§ MR. SEXTON
said, the Protection of Person and Property (Ireland) Act provided that the cases of the men arrested should be revised every three months. Would the right hon. Gentleman the Chief Secretary for Ireland say, in what manner and by what agency the investigations would be held, and what facilities would be afforded to the prisoners 356 to appear personally or by counsel to show cause for their release?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
, in reply said, he must ask the hon. Member to give Notice of the Question. He was, however, in a position to say that when he was in Ireland, he and the Lord Lieutenant had considered the matter, and had looked into some of the cases where the specified term of three months had expired.
