HC Deb 22 June 1921 vol 143 c1377W

asked the Home Secretary if persons interned in Ireland for acting in a manner prejudicial to the restoration of order in Ireland are informed of the precise grounds for this charge; and, if not, how they can rebut such charge?


In view of the grave danger which would in many cases ensue to persons giving information, the practice is not to supply interned persons with a formal statement of the evidence against them. If they apply to the Advisory Committee the evidence against them is indicated, as far as possible, when they appear before the Committee, and they are given the fullest oportunity of answering it. They are heard in person by the Committee at the internment camps.
