HC Deb 01 June 1905 vol 147 cc432-3

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the fact that a man concealed himself in a house in Gravesend last week, and after shooting dead one man and injuring one woman succeeded in escaping; and whether he can state what steps have been taken by the police to secure the murderer.


Yes, Sir. The murderer was found on Tuesday morning, but he committed suicide before he could be handed over to the police.

MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

May I ask whether, in view of the fact that Irish Members are expected to condemn crime in Ireland, English Members have done anything in that direction?
