§ Mr. KING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that evidence given at a court-martial held at Ship Street Barracks, Dublin, on 14th September and following days, revealed that in June last 40,000 rounds of rifle ammunition were sent by rail from Belfast to Dublin and elsewhere; whether expert evidence has established that a large part of this ammunition was of pre-war type; who were the consignors of this sending; and whether the original holders of it have been prosecuted and punished?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I wrote to my hon. Friend on the 22nd October for particulars of the persons tried, and on receipt of this information I shall be happy to cause inquiry to be made.
