HC Deb 26 November 1920 vol 135 c888
The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Colonel Sir Hamar Greenwood)

I beg to move, "That this House do now adjourn."

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.

Adjourned accordingly, at Two minutes after Five o'clock, till Monday next (29th November).
