§ 66. Mr. LUNN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the military courts in the martial-law areas which apparently replace the courts-martial set up under the Restoration of Order in Ireland Act, and which differ from them in important points of procedure, were instituted by the commander-in-chief of the martial-law area with or without consultation with him?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL for IRELAND (Mr. Denis Henry)
The arrangements to be made for the trial of offences under martial-law were fully discussed between my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary and the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Ireland, before martial-law was proclaimed.
