§ 58. Mr. LYNCH
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has received any information respecting the death of Ernest Cavanagh during the rising in Dublin; whether this young man, though he had taken no part whatever in the rising, was shot while alone, unarmed, and defenceless on the steps of Liberty Hall, under conditions which gave no ground for supposing that he was a combatant; whether he will advise an inquiry into the details of this matter; and whether such inquiry, if instituted, will be held in public?
No information regarding the death of Ernest Cavanagh has been received. Perhaps the hon. Member will forward me the evidence on which he bases his question.
