§ Mr. JOHN WALSH
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware in what prison John Murphy, of Crossmahon, Lissarda, county Cork, is at present interned, who was arrested on 10th May last; is he aware that he was never a member of any volunteer corps and only accompanied the Irish Volunteers on a procession to Cork on St. Patrick's Day; and whether, under the circumstances and in view of the time this man has been detained in prison, he will investigate his case dith a view to setting him free?
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. John Murphy is interned at Frongoch. The statements contained in the question are matters for the Advisory Committee, who have the prisoner's case under consideration.
