HC Deb 20 December 1906 vol 167 c1706

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the alleged compulsory detention of MR. George Duncan, M.A., late teacher of English at the Royal Staff College at Berlin, in the lunatic asylum at Buch, near Berlin; and whether he will direct immediate inquiries to be made into all the circumstances, with a view to his liberation or return to this country, of which he is a native.


The matter is before the Lunacy Commission, who are waiting for a translation of the judgment given by the German Court. If the hon. Member desires it, I shall be glad to let him see the translation and the medical opinions on MR. Duncan's condition.
