§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether lie will now cause inquiry to be made by telegram of Lord Kitchener I as to the circumstances attending the execution of Commander Scheepers.
§ MR. BRODRICK
Many statements similar to that which the hon. Member made in a Question put on Friday last appear without any justification whatever, and I must decline to answer any further Question put by the hon. Member on this subject until he furnishes me with his authority.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL
I pledge my responsibility for the truth of these statements. Will the right hon. Gentleman make inquiry? If not, it is most disgraceful on the part of the Government.
