HC Deb 14 March 1912 vol 35 c1251

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to a circular issued by the Civilian Force, 100, Victoria Street, Westminster, S.W., the President of which is His Grace the Duke of Abercorn, whose aims and objects are stated, among other things, to assist in the maintenance of law and order, and to oppose all those who advocate the use of force or violence in attacks on the British Constitution; and whether this body will be under the control of the police authorities when its operations extend to Ireland?


I know nothing of the body referred to.


Will this force be used to keep Lord Londonderry and the other rebels in order?
