§ MR. MACVEAGH
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.
§ MR. AKERS-DOUGLAS
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?
