asked the Prime Minister whether the arms and ammunition taken from loyal subjects in Ireland during the past two years or thereabouts by order of His Majesty's Government will now be restored to them; and what steps they should take to get back the arms and ammunition so taken?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that these arms were taken from loyal subjects by His Majesty's Government for the purpose of safe custody, and does he know that the failure to restore them is causing very great inconvenience to those from whom they were taken?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a considerable number of the arms taken by the police have subsequently been stolen by the Sinn Feiners, and will these also be restored?
