HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 cc22-3
54. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will submit to Members of this House the evidence on which John M Neill was sentenced to imprisonment for life in connection with the late rising in Dublin; and whether, in view of the fact that John M Neill used his influence to dissuade his followers from illegal acts, he will advise his immediate liberation?


My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has already announced that the proceedings of the Irish courts-martial will be published. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
