HC Deb 03 July 1916 vol 83 cc1203-4
89. Mr. PERCY HARRIS (Leicester, Harborough)

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will state what provision the Government is going to make for the dependants of the men of the Irish Volunteer Training Corps killed in action while helping the Regular troops to defend Beggar Bush Barracks, Dublin, while wearing the G.R. red armlet in the Irish rebellion; and whether, seeing that they had trained and equipped themselves at their own expense, the Government will see that they do not fare worse than the dependants of paid soldiers?


This question is at present under consideration by the Government. I regret that I am not yet in a position to make a definite announcement.
