HC Deb 20 June 1921 vol 143 c899
97. Mr. A. HERBERT

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, since his policy of reprisals has failed, it will be finally repudiated?


I cannot accept the premises contained in the hon. Member's question. The position is as stated by my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary on the 13th instant in reply to a question on this subject by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Bury St. Edmunds. To that reply there is nothing to add.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Chief Secretary said this policy of official reprisals was being reconsidered, and has any decision been come to to modify it or abandon it?


No, Sir.
