HC Deb 19 July 1915 vol 73 cc1151-2
19. Mr. R. MCNEILL

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that a man of hostile origin or association, called Reuter, resides at Normannia, Byfleet Road, Weybridge, overlooking the aerodrome at Brooklands; and that he and his wife openly express sympathy with the enemy and are believed to carry on an active correspondence by post with the Continent; and if he will say what course he intends to pursue as regards the internment or otherwise of these people?


The person named, though of German extraction, is a native of Finland and possessed Russian nationality when he obtained British naturalisation in 1904. I am not aware of the matters alleged in the second part of the question and I can obtain no confirmation of them. If the hon. Member will give me the information on which his question is based, I will make further inquiry.
