Sir R. HALL
asked the Secretary of State for War whether all munitions of war, including tanks, are being evacuated from the Irish Free State concurrently with the troops?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON - EVANS
Units leaving Ireland bring with them their equipment, including rifles, guns, and ammunition. All the tanks now in Ireland are obsolete or worn out, and these are being stripped and completely destroyed to save expense of transport. Any other munitions of war in possession of units, and no longer required by them, are being sent in to the Royal Army Ordnance Department, who will retain them under guard until dealt with.
