HC Deb 03 August 1906 vol 162 cc1600-1
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been directed to an occurrence in Donegal on July 24th, when a party of Nationalists attacked a number of men of the Connaught Rangers because they wore wearing the uniform of the British soldier, forced them upon their knees, and compelled thorn to curse the King and the British constitution and promise not to re-enlist in the Army when their term expired; and what action he intends to take to protect the soldiers of the King from such treatment.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) No information has reached the War Office from the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Ireland, as to the alleged occurrence.
