§ 33. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to a resolution, passed on the 11th instant by the Central Wales Federation of Evangelical Free Churches, to the effect that the federation, while strongly deploring the murder of policemen and soldiers in Ireland, records its energetic protest against the policy of reprisals in Ireland adopted by the Government and desires to press upon the Government the policy of reconciliation; and whether he will take an early opportunity of addressing the Free Churches of Wales?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have not seen the resolution referred to in the first part of my Noble Friend's question. I quite recently addressed a meeting in Wales on the subject, and I have every reason to believe my fellow-countrymen approve of the steps taken by the Government to stamp out murder in Ireland.
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
As the Evangelical Free Churches in Wales appear to be in state of heathen darkness as to the Christian character of the policy of reprisals, will not the right hon. Gentleman take an early opportunity of enlightening them?
