I have been asked by my right hon. Friend, the Member for Widnes (Mr. A. Henderson), to give him what information I have in reference to the arrest of Mr. Arthur Griffith, who is described as the Vice-President of an alleged Irish Republic. I have the following telegram:In the course of systematic raids which are being made throughout Dublin following the murders of last Sunday, the house of Mr. Arthur Griffith was raided at 3 a.m. this morning and a quantity of documents were found. These necessitate further investigation, and Mr. Griffith has been detained pending results.
