PRISONERS.

HC Deb 14 November 1916 vol 87 cc619-21W619W
§Mr. DUFFY
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the view held generally in Ireland that the continued imprisonment of political prisoners at Frongoch is a fruitful policy leading to unrest and exasperation, and certain to keep open the sore created by the Easter Week disturbances in Ireland; whether representations have been made to him respecting the cases of John Kilkelly, John Glyn, Patrick Hansberry, John Burke, John Whelan, and David Hanlon, from the Kinvarra district, county Galway; and whether he will review their cases with a view to their discharge?

Mr. SAMUEL
With regard to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to what my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary and I said in the course of the Debate on 18th October. With regard to the second part, I had received no representations about the men mentioned before the question appeared on the Paper; but their cases are now being dealt with in accordance with the general statement which I made in this House on 10th October in reply to a question by the hon. Member for North Galway.
