§ 61. Sir JOHN BUTCHER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will state the result of the discussions with the Provisional Government as to the position of rate collectors in Ireland whose collection books were seized by the Irish Republican Army some two years ago, and who were thereby deprived of their fees and earnings; and what arrangements have been made for assessing their pensions or compensation on a fair and equitable basis?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I would refer the hon. and learned Member to the reply which I gave on the 13th instant to the hon. and gallant Member for Finchley.
