HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 c548
44. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Home Secretary whether permission has been given to any officer of the late German Embassy to visit London since War was declared?


I am not aware that any such permission has been given. I have not granted a permit to enter the United Kingdom to any such person.

Sir J. D. REES

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman if he is aware of any such permission having been granted to any person throughout the United Kingdom?


No, Sir, I know of no case. I think I know the case to which the hon. Gentleman refers. There is no more substantial ground in that particular case than for any of the other stories which have come to us.
