HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 c1313W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the burning of part of the town of Westport, in County Mayo, was an official reprisal for an ambush at a place seven miles distant; if not, whether any steps have been taken to bring to trial those who were responsible for the burning; and whether compensation will be paid by the Government for the damage done?
