asked the Chief Secretary whether he will state the number of attacks made on Crown forces in Ireland during the week ending 11th June, and the number of casualties resulting to the Forces of the Crown and civilians respectively?


There were 55 attacks on Crown Forces during the week ending 11th June. The casualties to Crown Forces were: police, 5 killed, 35 wounded; military, 2 killed, 1 wounded. So far as is known, 7 civilians, including 6 rebels, were killed and not fewer than 7 wounded.

In view of that appalling account, do the Government still consider that their methods are succeeding in Ireland?


Yes, Sir.
