HC Deb 13 April 1921 vol 140 cc1107-8
61. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he has any information as to the burning down by Crown forces of two labourers' cottages, occupied by Patrick Cronin and Elizabeth Twomey, the property of the Macroom rural council, situated at Cool-nacahera, Macroom, on the 25th February, 1921; whether notice was given and an order made out by the military governor; and who ordered these burnings?


This place is in the martial law area, and I have, therefore, called for a report from the Commander-in-Chief with reference to the matter. If the hon. and gallant Member will kindly repeat the question on one day next week, I hope then to be in a position to furnish him with a reply.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is the right hon. Genleman now in a position to state whether the policy of official reprisals has been adopted? Is there a policy of official reprisals?


The hon. and gallant Member should give notice of that question.
