HC Deb 06 May 1931 vol 252 cc361-2

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now give the House any information concerning the safety of Father Tierney?

The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Arthur Henderson)

I regret to say that Father Tierney died of illness, while in capitivity on 11th March. In his letter communicating this information, the Minister for Foreign Affairs expressed deep regret and stated that the provincial authorities had been given orders to apprehend within a fixed period the bandits who bad captured Father Tierney.
