§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether De Valera was furnished with a passport when sailing for America; if not, how he succeeded in securing his passage; and whether any demand has been made for his extradition?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I have ascertained that De Valera was not furnished with a passport by the Foreign Office. It is not known how he secured his passage to America. The answer to the last portion of the question is in the negative.
