HC Deb 08 August 1904 vol 139 c1367
MR. GORDON (Londonderry, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that on the occasion of the recent visit of the Innis-killing Fusiliers to Maghera, county Londonderry, the walls of the town were placarded with notices to the young men of Maghera warning them to keep out of the company of the British soldiers, and that whoever joined the British Army or kept company with soldiers was a renegade, and to remember that they owed allegiance to Ireland only; and whether he will take steps to prevent such placards being exhibited in future.


At my right hon. friend's request I will reply to this Question. Notices of the character mentioned were posted, and were at once removed by the police when discovered. The police have standing instructions to remove all such notices wherever found.


Is there any possibility of bringing to justice the authors of these notices?
