HC Deb 24 July 1916 vol 84 c1315

The following question was on the Paper in the name of Mr. SWIFT MacNEILL:

46. Whether, regard being had to the fact that His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale, Earl of Armagh, and Prince of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, a traitor in arms with the enemies of these countries against the Sovereign and people of the British Empire, is in the line of succession to the Throne under the provisions of the Act of Settlement, any and what steps will be taken to deprive him of his position under these provisions?


I postponed this question by request from this day week until to-day, and at the further request of the right hon Gentleman I postpone it until to-morrow. This is the third and last time of asking.
