§ MR. ROWNTREE (Scarborough)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If, in view of the extracts from the Departmental Inquiry into the shooting of three men at Mitchelstown on September 9 last now furnished to Members of this House, the Government will also furnish Members with copies of the shorthand writer's report of the proceedings at the inquest held at Mitchelstown containing the sworn evidence of the officials present at the proceedings of September 9?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN) (Dublin University)
(who replied) said: The right hon. Gentleman the Chief Secretary has already stated, in reply to former Questions, that the Government cannot consent to lay on the Table the documents referred to. I may add that the hon. Member appears to put his Question under a misapprehension. No extract whatever from the Departmental Inquiry has been presented to the House.
§ MR. ROWNTREE
May I ask if the paper showing the diagram of Mitchelstown Square and the police barracks is not an extract from the Departmental Report?
