HC Deb 10 July 1916 vol 84 c16
64. Major NEWMAN

asked whether, in consonance with the public safety, he can give the House any information with regard to the present strength and efficiency of the National Volunteers; are they fully armed and provided with uniforms; have they taken any oath similar to that taken recently by the Volunteer Force in this country; have they been, or any part of them, inspected by any competent military authority; if so, will he-state the nature of the Report; and does the Irish Government contemplate using them in the event of an invasion of Ireland?


I am unable to add anything to the reply which was given to a similar question of the hon. and gallant Member on the 27th January last.
