§ Mr. McManus
asked the Minister of State for Defence whether Bernard McGeary, Ardmere Road, Coalisland, County Tyrone, was brought to the compound in Holywood Military Barracks on Friday, 17th September, 1971; and what complaints have been made about his treatment there.
§ Mr. G. Johnson Smith
Mr. McGeary was arrested by the Army on 17th September and was promptly transferred to the civil authorities at Holywood Barracks. No complaint about his treatment there has been received by the authorities—the Royal Ulster Contabulary being the proper authority for complaints of this kind.
