HC Deb 21 April 1920 vol 128 c393

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?


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.
