asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that placards have been extensively posted throughout certain parts of Ireland to the effect that Ireland honours Madar Lal Dhingra, who was proud to lay down his life for the cause of his country; and whether the police have discovered the authors of the placards praising a murderer; and, if so, have any arrests been made?
§ Mr. CHERRY
I am informed by the police authorities that a number of such placards were found posted in various parts of Ireland, and were at once torn down by the police. The authors have not so far been discovered, nor have any arrests been made.
§ Mr. JEREMIAH MacVEAGH
May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman has heard that these placards were posted by the organisation which prints and publishes "Grievances from Ireland"?
