§ 37. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the girl assaulted at Athlone by two English soldiers has yet succumbed to her injuries; whether the two soldiers are in custody; and before what kind of tribunal they are to be sent for trial?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The young woman who was the victim of this outrage was confined to bed, but is now progressing favourably. She will be able to attend the Assizes on the 1st proximo, to which the two soldiers, who are now in custody, have been committed.
