§ 49. Mr. R. LAMBERT
asked the Prime Minister whether the hon. and gallant Member for West Clare has accepted a post in connection with the voluntary recruiting campaign in Ireland, and has received a commission as colonel in His Majesty's Army; and, if so, whether he will be permitted to continue his propa- 1208 ganda in favour of a republic in this country in association with his recruiting efforts?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The hon. Member for West Clare has not accepted a post in connection with the voluntary recruiting campaign in Ireland, but has undertaken to raise a battalion by his personal efforts, and for that purpose has received a commission as colonel in the Army. The hon. Member, I am confident, may be relied upon to conduct his recruiting campaign without introducing into it any political propaganda.
