§ 7. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has now considered the question of placing the soldiers serving in Ireland on a war footing; and what decision has been arrived at?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
I am afraid I can add nothing to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on the 15th instant in reply to a question by the hon. Member for South Islington (Mr. Higham).
§ Colonel YATE
May I ask whether, if the troops had been under service conditions, the lives of those unfortunate officers who were killed the other day would have been saved?
§ Colonel CLAUDE LOWTHER
Will the widows of soldiers killed in Ireland be entitled to the same pensions as the widows of soldiers killed in the Great War?
