§ 36. Mr. KING
asked the Home Secretary whether he has inquired into the case of Charles Sarno, a Russian subject, who left Russia sixteen years ago as. a political refugee, and who has lived in this country for years and was ready to join the British Army; why this man was apprehended, imprisoned, and destined for deportation to Russia; whether he was saved from deportation and exile in Siberia solely by the Grant by the High Court on the 25th July of a rule of habeas corpus; whether any deportation order for Sarno was signed; if not, why he has been so treated; and whether reparation and an apology will be tended to Mr. Sarno?
As this case has been brought before the Court again I cannot say anything in the matter except that I do not accept the accuracy of any of the statements or suggestions in the question.
I cannot add anything to the answer I have given. As the matter is sub judice it would be improper for me to discuss it in the House.
§ Mr. KING
I beg to give notice that I shall call attention to this case on the Third Reading of the Consolidated Fund Bill.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I would point out to the hon. Member that if the case is before the Court that would be a very improper thing to do.
