HC Deb 10 March 1881 vol 259 c728

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether the Government contemplates the immediate withdrawal of troops from Ireland, as stated in the "Times" of Saturday the 5th March?


I know nothing on this subject, except that I have read the paragraph in The Times to which the hon. Member refers. It conjectures what Government may probably do after the Arms Bill has passed. I really cannot undertake to answer all the predictions as to the future intentions of Her Majesty's Government which may appear in the newspapers.
