HC Deb 30 June 1921 vol 143 c2357W

asked the Chief Secretary whether compensation has yet been paid to the proprietor of the "Weekly Observer" newspaper, Newcastle West, whose office was wrecked by Crown forces a year ago; whether after the claim was made for compensation a band of Auxiliary police arrived and accused him of reporting them, after which they seriously assaulted him, looted his property, and burned his hay; and whether any of them have been put on trial?


If the hon. Member will repeat one day next week this question, in regard to which I am in communication with the Commander-in-Chief, I hope then to be in a position to furnish him with a reply.
