HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 c411W

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if it is still professed that no needless hardship is to be inflicted upon the men banished from Ireland without charge or trial beyond the banishment itself; will he name their respective places of internment and the persons interned in each of those places?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the latter part, I am afraid that it would not be in the public interest, nor in the interests of the gentlemen themselves, to give this information.
