HC Deb 08 November 1911 vol 30 c1781W

asked the Under-Secretary for War if any report was made to the War Office of the proceedings at the inquests on the men killed by the military at Llanelly and Liverpool in connection with the recent strikes; and, if so, whether he will lay those reports upon the Table of the House?

Colonel SEELY

The War Office was legally represented on both the occasions referred to; the legal representatives forwarded to the War Office the accounts of the proceedings in the local newspapers. The War Office was represented at the inquests by military officers, who reported verbally to the authorities. They furnished no information beyond that which appeared in the Press; there would therefore be no advantage in laying papers.
