HC Deb 18 February 1921 vol 138 c438

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has made further inquiry with regard to the incidents at Mallow, and what is the exact position?

The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Colonel Sir Hamar Greenwood)

The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Derby asked me yesterday if it were true that the legal representatives of the persons concerned at Mallow had been refused permission to attend the inquiry there. I am informed by the Commander-in-Chief that the legal representative of the Mallow railwaymen concerned or interested in the events following the murder of Mrs. King was not refused admission to the military inquiry on any occasion. Every allegation of ill-treatment made by my right hon. Friend will be carefully inquired into. The Court will re-assemble to-morrow (Saturday) for that purpose, and the railwaymen's legal representative will be asked to attend the inquiry.


I very much appreciate the efforts which have been made to elicit the truth.
