HC Deb 16 June 1902 vol 109 c704
MR. DOOGAN (Tyrone, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if it has come to his knowledge that flags were hung out, on a recent occasion, from three licensed premises in Cookstown; and whether, in view of the provisions of the licensing laws affecting such a display, he will state what steps will be taken to prevent its recurrence.


Flags were displayed from licensed premises in celebration of peace ensuing after a prolonged war, that is to say, on an occasion of national rejoicing and all but world-wide satisfaction. The Crown docs not propose to take action in the direction suggested.
