asked the Secretary to the Treasury the amount of the claim of the "Freeman's Journal" Company, Dublin, in respect of destruction of property, and the amounts under other heads; what the other heads are; and where particulars of the entire claim can be seen?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

All such claims are being investigated by Sir William Goulding's Committee, and until the Report of the Committee has been received I shall not be in a position to make any statement on this or any other individual claim.


Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House whether it is under cover of these claims that the money is to be advanced for forming and running a new paper in Dublin?


No, Sir.
