HC Deb 01 June 1921 vol 142 c1041
41. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Chief Secretary whether the trial of two constables for having beaten and shot John P. Greene, a Kitchener scholar at University College, Galway, on 14th May, 1921, is proceeding; whether his attention has been drawn to the treatment of James S. R. A. Egan, health insurance inspector for County Mayo, on the same day, and the shooting of Daniel Gilloway, at Magmore, County Clare; and whether any arrests have been made in connection with these?


On a point of Order. Is not this question, as framed by the hon. and gallant Gentleman, calculated to prejudice the fair trial of two constables? It says, "whether the trial of two constables for having beaten and shot". Should not the question be worded, "on the allegation of having beaten and shot"?


I agree. I think the word "alleged" should be in the question.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

With your permission I will add that word. HON. MEMBERS "Withdraw!"]


In the cases of John Green and James Egan, two constables are awaiting trial on charge of attempted murder. In the case of Daniel Killoughrey, the Court of Inquiry, in lieu of inquest, found that death was due to a bullet wound inflicted by Crown forces in the execution of their duty, and that no member of the Crown forces was to blame
