HC Deb 16 May 1916 vol 82 c1351W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he has received a resolution from the Limerick Rural District Council protesting against the prosecution and imprisonment of Michael Brennan as being without cause and inconsistent with the omission to prosecute the Ulster leader for arming and advising men to resist the law; whether he recognises that popular respect for law depends upon its impartial administration; and, if so, whether Michael Brennan will be released or the Ulster leader prosecuted?


The case against this man issub judice, and therefore it is not possible to reply to the hon. Member at present.
