HC Deb 03 March 1921 vol 138 c1998
59. Mr. DEVLIN

asked the Chief Secretary whether his attention has been called to the burning of 20 houses in the town of Ballylongford, County Kerry, on Tuesday, 22nd February, by the forces of the Crown; whether seven lorries of these forces visited the town, and raided and looted houses, before finally setting them on fire; whether, amongst other buildings raided, was the local post office, from which over £30 worth in cash and stamps was stolen; whether the lorries afterwards drove back to Tralee laden with loot; and what steps he proposes to take in the matter?


These allegations refer to the Martial Law area. I have called for but have not yet received a report with reference to them. I will furnish the hon. Member with the desired information as soon as I am in a position to do so.
