HC Deb 18 July 1916 vol 84 cc835-6
45. Sir W. BYLES

asked the Prime Minister whether the necessity will arise on the abrogation of martial law in Ire- land for legislation indemnifying those administering martial law from the liabilities which their acts may have entailed; and whether such legislation will be introduced at an early date?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith);

I would refer my hon. Friend to the written answer to a similar question given yesterday by my right hon. Friend the SolicitorGeneral to the hon. and gallant Member for Maidstone.


How long is it intended to keep Ireland under the heel of the soldier?
