§ 60. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Home Secretary if Mr. Gerard Crofts, of Dublin, has been convicted of anything but the singing of patriotic songs, will he say what it is, on what evidence, and whether in an open Court whether he is the only prisoner undergoing penal servitude for the singing of patriotic songs; and, having regard to his delicate health and the character of the offence, if he is to be kept in custody whether it will be as a political prisoner?
§ Mr. TENNANT
I cannot answer this question without examining the proceedings and the evidence. This I have not yet been able to do.
