HC Deb 09 December 1920 vol 135 cc2447-8W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to posters in the Sinn Fein districts of Belfast which state that any Roman Catholic who joins the special constabulary will be treated as a traitor; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I am informed that typed notices, of the kind referred to, were found posted up in certain districts of Belfast a few days ago, and were at once removed by the police. Every step is taken to protect Roman Catholics and all other well-disposed persons who join the special constabulary.
