The note is signed by Austin Stack and mentions an enclosure of the Decree of 17th September 1920. The enclosure is not present.
Typed on the headed paper of Dáil Éireann, Department of Home Affairs.
As Minister of Home Affairs Austin Stack set about establishing arbitration courts on a national scale. Between the Anglo–Irish truce in July 1921 and March 1922, these ‘republican courts’ functioned with great effectiveness. As 1922 progressed, and with the handing over by the British of the legal machinery of the state to the Free State government, they were rendered superfluous and were formally abolished in October 1922.
