asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will urge the Provisional Government to procure the release of ex-Sergeant-Major Daniel Pollock, Royal Irish Fusiliers, reported to have been arrested in Cavan, while bidding goodbye to his friends, by four armed men and conveyed to an unknown destination?

I am inquiring as to the whereabouts and safety of this man, and endeavouring to obtain his release.

(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has received information of the kidnapping of David Pollock, son of Sergeant-Major Pollock, both demobilised soldiers, which took place at Cavan on 14th June; if he is aware that David Pollock's life was threatened and that apparently he had not returned to Cavan before 21st June; and can he give any information as to David Pollock; and what steps are being taken to obtain his release?

I am sorry to say that my hon. and gallant Friend's notice has not been received. Perhaps he will repeat the question on Monday?

Has not the right hon. Gentleman received information addressed to him from Cavan setting out the whole facts of the case?
