The strike called by the Irish Labour Party will go ahead in Dublin meaning that much of the city would be at a standstill. The Lord Mayor of Dublin supported the strike and said that the residents must oppose lawlessness and clear out the Irish armies from the city.

David Lloyd George, the Prime Minister, said that the disagreement over the Rapallo Conference, where German and Russian officials met to sign a treaty between their nations, was closed and that he was positive about the outcome of the Genoa Conference.
