§ 31. Colonel GRETTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if any persons have been arrested in the Irish Free State for complicity in the murders and wounding of British officers and soldiers at Queenstown in May, 1924; and if the Colonial Office has made any representations in this matter recently?
§ Mr. AMERY
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. In reply to the second part, as the hon. and gallant Member was informed on the 1st April last, His Majesty's Government are satisfied that every effort has been 1995 made by the Government of the Irish Free State to trace the perpetrators of this outrage, and there would not, therefore, appear to be any ground for representations in the matter.
§ Colonel GRETTON
Have His Majesty's Government given up all hope of anyone being brought to justice in connection with this outrage?
§ Sir WILLIAM DAVISON
Has the ownership of the Rolls-Royce car, on which the machine guns were mounted which shot down our men, been ascertained; have inquiries been made as to what became of it, or who owned it?
