§ 38. Mr. MOSLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether a military proclamation was issued at Listowel on the 27th April last stating that in future reprisals for any outrage against lives or property of officials will be taken against the property of selected persons of known rebel sympathies without proof of their implication in the outrages; and whether this proclamation commands the support of His Majesty's Government?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
This matter was fully dealt with by my right hon. Friend the Attorney-General for Ireland in reply to a similar question by the hon. and gallant Member for the Leith Division on the 9th ultimo.
§ Mr. MOSLEY
May I ask the Chief Secretary if he was aware of this proclamation when he made his statement last week?
§ Captain W. BENN
Is it not a fact that the right hon. Gentleman's speech was a flat contradiction of the proclamation?
