§ 57. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he still retains the papers of Sir Roger Casement, seized before his trial, including a diary purported to have been written by him.
§ Major Lloyd-George
Certain papers which came into the hands of the police in connection with the criminal proceedings against Casement are retained in the Home Office. It has been the consistent policy of my predecessors not to make any statement as to the existence or nonexistence of any diaries and I regret that I cannot give the hon. Member any information on this point.
