HC Deb 04 July 1916 vol 83 c1354

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he has yet received a report in the case of Mrs. Naylor, shot on the bridge at Great Brunswick Street, Dublin, by soldiers firing from the belfry of Haddington Road Church; under whose orders those soldiers continued for five hours firing on that bridge, where there were no Irish combatants, thus preventing the removal of the dying woman, who eventually died while being carried to hospital; and why the military did not allow an inquest in this case?


No information has been received in the Irish Command of the alleged shooting of Mrs. Naylor, but I am taking steps to ascertain the facts.
