§ 15. Mr. GINNELL
asked how many born British subjects have been imprisoned without charge or trial in the United Kingdom since the War began; how many are now in prison without charge or trial; and whether any legal assistance has been offered to them?
I assume that the hon. Member refers to cases dealt with under the Defence of the Realm Regulation 14 B. The number of British-born subjects who have been so dealt with and are now detained in places of internment is seventeen, of whom seven are of German origin and the remainder of hostile associations. These persons are allowed to take legal advice.
