HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 c364

asked whether any correspondence has passed between the American and British Governments with reference to the execution of Roger Casement in disregard of the points raised in the review of the case addressed to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs by the American lawyer who had watched the case, especially in disregard of the fact that the British Government had prevented certain relevant material being brought before the Court, thus preventing the Court having the whole case before it; and whether any such correspondence will be made available to Members of this House?


I have nothing to add to the answer given to the hon. Member on 26th October of last year.


Seeing that that answer charged me with putting an untruth on the Paper, has the right hon. Gentleman since verified the statements on the Paper, and, if so, will he mention any of them that is untrue? The answer of the right hon. Gentleman is untrue.
