IN the House of Commons, on Thursday, Mr SAMUEL SXITH asked the Home Secretary wbetbet the men known as emergency men" who accompany the solicitor for the Clergy Defence Association to and at the tithe dis- traint sales in Flintshire huve been sworn in as special constables; whether at all these seizures and sales they are armed, in addition to the usual police batons, with cutlasses and revolvers if so, whether the carrying of such arms is legal; and whether the authorities, and the Home Office especially, approve of these men being so armed ? Mr Matthews.âI am informed by the Chief Constable of Flintshire that these constables are not sworn in as special constables. He was not aware at the time that they had any arms. He has since ascertained that on one occasion the solicitor and one of bis bailiffs did carry revolvers, while several of the bailiffs bad ship cutlasses concealed under their coats. They had received information that they were to beattacked by a body of miners, and were afraid that they should be subjected to violence. I am not aware that this was illegal; but I should disapprove of deadly weapons being carried, except in self- defe o â aud for ti e suppression of riots. Mr f. Ellis askeJ whether these emergency men had been wearing police batons at any time P Mr Mathews.-I have no information as to the fact.
