HC Deb 22 June 1921 vol 143 c1376W

asked the Chief Secretary how many members of the Crown forces in Ireland have been punished since 1st January for the destruction of houses or other property in unofficial reprisals?


No soldiers have been punished for offences of this nature since 1st January last. Action is proceeding against certain soldiers for the destruction of shop windows and other damage at Youghal, but the results of the trials are not yet to hand. No police have been punished for such offences during the period named.
