§ Mr. A. WILLIAMS
asked the Home Secretary whether Sean McGraith, an Irishman resident in England, has been arrested in England and deported without trial and without any charge being made against him; whether the same has been done in the case of other Irishmen resident in England; and, if so, how many cases and under what statute such arrests and deportations are made
§ Mr. SHORTT
Mr. McGraith was arrested in London and has been interned in Ireland in pursuance of Regulation 14B of the Regulations made under the Restoration of Order in Ireland Act. He is interned as a person who is suspected of acting, having acted, and being about to act in a manner prejudicial to the restoration and maintenance of order in Ireland. I have made orders for the internment of a total of 13 other persons on the same grounds.
