HC Deb 01 December 1938 vol 342 cc604-5
Sir David Reid

(by Private Notice) asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has any information as to the attacks upon British Customs posts on the borders of Eire?

Sir J. Simon

I am informed that between 10 and 11 p.m. on 29th November four Customs land boundary posts at Upper Fathom, Killeen, Clontivrim and Mullan, were totally destroyed by high explosive bombs. In addition, the Customs land boundary station at Belleek was so damaged as to be uninhabitable. There was no loss of life or injury in connection with the outrages.
