§ 47. Mr. JELLETT
asked the Prime Minister whether a steamer purporting to contain a cargo of lager beer from Germany was recently detained at a port in the United Kingdom and on examination was found to contain machine guns, light artillery, rifles, and ammunition, all of German manufacture; whether these warlike munitions were forwarded by persons in Germany for the purpose of aiding the Irish Sinn Feiners in their treasonable campaign against His Majesty and the British Empire; and what steps His Majesty's Government have taken, or intend to take, to prevent a renewal of the secret conspiracy between Germany and Ireland which existed during the War?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
This question presumably refers to the ships in regard to which an answer was given yesterday by the Admiralty, to which I can add nothing.
