HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 c1277
48. Mr. G. THORNE

asked the Chief Secretary whether the house of Mr. David Clancy, of Kilfinane, county Cork, was destroyed in the month of February by military or police as a reprisal for the burning of an aeroplane which had descended close by; and whether, in view of the admission by the police that the house was burnt without authority, the £900 compensation awarded by Judge Lawsmith at the Limerick Quarter Sessions will be paid by the Treasury?


The particular incident referred to is at present the subject of inquiry. In regard to the payment of the compensation awarded, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by me to the hon. Member for Central Hull on the 9th March last on the subject of compensation awards generally.

Forward to
