HC Deb 26 July 1923 vol 167 cc737-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that full information of the discovered bodies of two British officers murdered at Macroom is in the possession of the Irish Free State; and will he obtain this information and communicate it to the House?


I have made inquiry of the Free State Government and was informed last night that they have no information as to the discovery of the bodies of the two officers referred to. My hon. and gallant Friend will remember that in reply to the question which he addressed to me on the 12th instant I asked him to place at my disposal any information in his possession. I have only just received my hon. Friend's letter, but in view of the information therein contained I will take up the matter further.
