§ Mr. MORRELL
(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether he has received any report of the arrest and shooting of Mr. Sheehy-Skeffiington in Dublin, and whether this execution took place 454 before martial law had been proclaimed; whether his widow has been unable to obtain any official information in regard to her husband's fate, and why this man's name was not included amongst the names of those who were shot?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have only just received my hon. Friend's notice. I know nothing whatever of this case. I never heard of it. I will make inquiry into it if possible before to-morrow and give all the information I can.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the right hon. Gentleman inform us whether this man was shot on Tuesday evening, 25th April, when returning to his own home, unarmed?
§ Mr. T. M. HEALY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that two editors, one a Scotsman, who were entirely opposed to the revolt, were taken and shot by an officer in Portobello Barracks, without any form of trial, or even time to say their prayers?
§ Mr. OUTHWAITE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a widespread feeling in this country that those men should be prosecuted who first imported arms into Ireland?
