HC Deb 28 June 1920 vol 131 c30
58. Major BARNES

asked the Prime Minister if martial law has been proclaimed in any part of Ireland; if so, in what part or parts; and whether, in the event of martial law being proclaimed, the attention of officers upon whom its execution will fall will be drawn to the views of the Government on the administration of martial law as expressed by the Secretary of State for India in his letter to the Government of India following on the Memorandum on the Hunter Report submitted to him by that Government?


No, Sir. Martial law has not been proclaimed, but should it at any time be necessary to adopt such a course I have no doubt that the duties falling upon them would be properly carried out by the officers of His Majesty's Army.

Lieut.-Colonel CROFT

Have any of the leaders of the movement been arrested since this rebellion started?


Notice should be given of that.

Colonel C. LOWTHER

Is there any truth in the report that Brigadier-General Lucas has been captured?


Notice has been given of a question on that subject.
