§ 53. Mr. WATERSON
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware of the injustice and hardship caused to small farmers in Ireland by the arbitrary closing of creameries by order of the military because of damage to roads; whether, seeing that the farmers themselves suffer far more than the military by the damage to roads, punitive measures of this kind must fail to achieve their ostensible object; and whether, in view of the impossibility of unarmed citizens either to prevent damage to roads by the Irish Republican Army or to take steps to repair the roads without risking their lives, the whole policy can be reconsidered?
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
I have nothing to add to the reply given to a question on this subject by the hon. Member on Thursday last.
§ Mr. WATERSON
Are we to understand that no action is being taken by the Government to dispose of the milk produced, day after day? Is it going to waste?
