HC Deb 18 May 1916 vol 82 c1656W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Munitions whether Nationalists at munition works in Ireland are now being dismissed and Englishmen put in their places; to what extent this has been done; and, in view of the consequences of this policy, whether it will be reconsidered by the Government before being carried further?


No such dismissals of Nationalists have taken place at the munition works under the direct control of the Ministry of Munitions, nor have the Ministry any knowledge of any such dismissals elsewhere.
