Sir HENRY DALZIEL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department a question of which I have given him private notice: Whether, having regard to the Prime Minister's statement that a tribunal was to be set up for dealing with alien enemies, he can now state whether this has been done, and, if so whether he can inform the House of its constitution?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Simon)
Yes, Sir, the Prime Minister referred to the proposal to appoint an advisory body of a judicial character. The body appointed for England and Wales consists of two Judges of the High Court and four Members of this House. They are Mr. Justice Sankey, Mr. Justice Younger, the right hon. and gallant Gentleman the. Member for the Epping Division (Colonel Lockwood), the hon. Member for Peebles and Selkirk (Mr. Maclean), the hon. Member for the Bewdley Division (Mr. Baldwin), and the hon. Member for Newry (Mr. Mooney). I hope to make a further statement on the subject at an early date.
