§ Sir C. YATE
asked the Home Secretary whether the two men, Hogan and Cooley, sentenced for the theft of machine guns and rifles from Chelsea and Windsor Barracks, are to be released; and when the complete statements made by Sergeant Roche, referred to in the Press, are to be published?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The men mentioned are post-truce criminals and therefore not covered by the late decision. As regards the second part of the question, the trial was fully reported in the Press; and it 1221W would be contrary to practice, and unnecessary, to publish documentary evidence after the conclusion of the trial.
