HC Deb 04 February 1908 vol 183 c711
SIR W. J. COLLINS (St. Pancras, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether the special tribunal under the decree of 1895, by which the Denshawi prisoners were sentenced, is still in operation; and if so, whether any change in procedure has been effected, whereby sentences passed by such tribunal shall in future be subject to appeal.


I beg to refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. Member for South Donegal of 31st July last. There has been no change in the situation since that date, which is to the effect that the tribunal will not be brought into operation under the old conditions.
