Is the Secretary of State for War aware that it was authoritatively stated that in order to protect British military installations the Six County Government ordered the mobilisation of B men, with orders to fire on any motorist who failed to stop within a reasonable distance, and as a result of that one man was shot dead and two others were seriously injured? Will he indicate why it was necessary for the Army to shelter behind the backs of the B men?
