HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 cc1422-3

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, having regard to the increase in the number of outrages with firearms reported since the expiry of the Peace Preservation Act, he will cause special inquiries to be made by the police with regard to the extensive traffic in firearms now being carried on in Ireland, and especially with regard to the sale of such weapons upon the instalment plan.


I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. friend the Chief Secretary to a Question on the same subject asked by the hon. Member on the 5th instant.
