HC Deb 20 March 1919 vol 113 cc2208-9
17. Mr. REID

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, on the night of 8th March, a body of about 200 Sinn Feiners who reside at a distance invaded the town of Crossgar, county Down, under cover of darkness, and attacked a number of housesbelonging to Unionists, and seriously injured a number of policemen; whether Crossgar has hitherto been orderly and peaceable; and whether the necessary steps will be taken to prevent a recurrence of such attacks?


I regret to say that the facts are as stated. All necessary steps are being taken to bring the culprits to justice.
