§ 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?
§ Mr. HENRY
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.
