asked the Chief Secretary by whose authority the seizure of postcard photographs of the Irish rebel leaders and Irish song books was made in Dublin last week; and if he will state if the newsagents whose stock was destroyed will be compensated?


By order of the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief the police seized certain song books and coloured prints of Irish rebel leaders accompanied by seditious matter. Some postcard photographs which were seized in error in one division of the city are being returned.
