§ Captain FOXCROFT
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to a report in the Press of 18th February as to the holding of a republican court in Dublin, presided over by Mr. J. Creed Meredith; whether Mr. Meredith is a King's Counsel; whether he will make representations to the Provisional Government on the matter of the holding of these republican courts; and whether he can take any steps to prevent a King's Counsel from presiding over such courts?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The reply to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative, and to the fourth part in the negative. In reply to the third part, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which I gave him on the 9th instant.
