§ 67. Mr. SHEEHY
asked the Home Secretary what crime Mrs. Sheehy-Skeffington has committed that warrants the Government to refuse her permission to return to Ireland?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir George Cave)
I am not aware that Mrs. Sheehy-Skeffington has committed any offence within the jurisdiction of our Courts, but she has been engaged in anti-British propaganda in the United States, and, as her presence in Ireland in existing circumstances is considered by the Irish Government to be undesirable, she has been prohibited from returning to Ireland by an Order under Regulation 14E of the Defence of the Realm Regulations.
§ Mr. SHEEHY
In view of the nature of the reply, I beg to give notice that I shall take the earliest opportunity of discussing the matter.
§ Mr. MacVEAGH
Is it a fact that Captain Coulthurst, who murdered this lady's husband, has been allowed to return to Ireland?
