§ 80. Colonel GRETTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can make any further statement in the case of the murderous attacks made upon British officers and soldiers at Queenstown?
I regret that I have no further statement to make on this matter, except that I am glad to hear from my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War that all the victims are progressing satisfactorily. Five have been discharged from hospital.
§ Colonel GRETTON
Does the right hon. Gentleman recollect that one unfortunate man was killed, and that the damage was done by persons firing out of a Rolls-Royce car, and does he know how many Rolls-Royce cars there are in Ireland? I am told that there are only five.
My hon. and gallant Friend is a better judge of Rolls-Royce cars than I am. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why?"]
That is perfectly true, but, all the people to whom I advertise these cars do not buy them.
