20. Mr. HAZLETON
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has ascertained that the name of Sergeant Jones was set out in Mr. John MacNeill's statement concerning his relations with Major Price; and whether any steps have been taken to secure evidence from him?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Duke)
The name of Sergeant Jones was set out in the statement. He states that he was not present during any conversation between Major Price and Mr. John MacNeill.
§ Mr. DEVLIN
May I ask whether it is a fact that it was not stated that he was present, but that he subsequently visited Mr. John MacNeill and pressed Mr. John MacNeill to accede to the request made to him by Major Price?
How can the right hon. Gentleman claim that he has made any sort of investigation into this case when last week he denied in the House that the name of Sergeant Jones was even mentioned in John MacNeill's statement?
