HC Deb 23 June 1921 vol 143 c1525
45. Mr. C. WHITE

asked the Chief Secretary whether any investigation was made at the Court of Inquiry into the killing of three men at Castle Connell into the charge that dum-dum bullets were used by the police on that occasion?


No evidence in regard to the alleged use of dum-dum bullets by members of the Crown forces at Castle Connell was given at the Court of Inquiry, but this matter has since been carefully inquired into by the Commander-in-Chief, who is satisfied, as a result of his investigations, that the allegation is entirely unfounded.

Captain BENN

Is it not a fact that the Government refused to take the evidence of a well-known London surgeon, who had it in his possession?


The well-known London surgeon was not prepared to go to Ireland.


Was the well-known London surgeon prevented from going for fear of being murdered by the forces of the Crown?
