§ 18. Mr. GRETTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the arms taken during the rebellion in Ireland will be distributed to the Home Guards, and other formations in Great Britain to which these arms would be useful for drill purposes?
§ Mr. TENNANT
I can assure the hon. Gentleman that an appropriate method of disposing of any arms taken under the circumstances he mentions will be found, and that all relevant considerations, military, political, sentimental, and otherwise, will be taken into account before any particular method of disposing of the arms is adopted.
§ Mr. T. M. HEALY
Will it not be desirable to collect all those arms so that the House may have some idea of the magnitude or relative size of the rebellion?
