In this newsreel, Éamon de Valera arrives in London in July 1921 for discussions on a peace proposal for Ireland with Count George Noble Plunkett, Robert Barton and Arthur Griffith.

The first stage in these negotiations was the dispatch of an Irish delegation to London on July 12th. The party consisted of de Valera, Arthur Griffith, Austin Stack and Erskine Childers but these conversations were primarily between Lloyd George and de Valera.
