It was confirmed that the polling for the Cardigan by-election would take place on 18 February. The by-election was called following the elevation to the Peerage of Matthew Vaughan-Davies, the constituency MP from 1895 until 1921, so that, at David Lloyd George’s request, Ernest Evans could stand.

Munitions were discovered by British authorities at Sligo Cemetery, including 10 revolvers, 150 rounds of ammunition, 1,000 yards of explosive fuse and 12 sticks of gelignite.

The German Government said that it did not agree with the war reparation figures that had been set by the Allies and that it would soon publish their own suggestions.
