HC Deb 25 October 1920 vol 133 cc1379-80W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been called to a resolution passed at a meeting of the political council of the Burslem and District Industrial Cooperative Society, representing 23,000 members resident in the Parliamentary Divisions of Burslem, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Leek, and West Staffordshire, indignantly protesting against the continued wanton destruction by the armed uniformed forces of the Crown, in a so-called reprisals campaign, of co-operative creameries in Ireland, the property of an entirely unpolitical and unsectarian movement of small farmers and workers, calling upon the Government to immediately stop such outrages, to take steps to punish the offenders, and to make full reparation for the damage done out of the Imperial Exchequer; and what steps the Government intends to take respecting the same?


My attention has been called to the resolution in question. I can add nothing to what I said in the course of last Wednesday's Debate.
