§ Mr. PIRIE
Before the right hon. Gentleman answers: May I ask whether in view of the statesmanlike view expressed by the Prime Minister in Fife on Saturday that peace must be a peace with honour on both sides, the visit referred to was not a perfectly natural one, and one that ought to be free from criticism?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I think my answer will cover the point raised by my hon. Friend. The instructions to General Macready were of a confidential character, but I may add that there was no question of the proclamation of martial law.
