HC Deb 30 July 1918 vol 109 c234

asked if the German named Saure is still permitted to visit the neighbourhood of our reservoir and waterworks at Hirwain and Penydaren, Glamorganshire; if he is still permitted to travel to and from London; if he will explain why any German is allowed to get near the people's water supplies; if he will see that this German is interned at once; and if he will make inquiries who the German is who lives at or near the Cardiff Waterworks, and lock him up for the safety of the people of Cardiff?


If the hon. Member refers to the case of Francis Sauer, I understand that he severed his connection with the firm on whose business he used to visit Glamorganshire in September, 1916, and I have no information that he has travelled to Wales since, but I am making inquiries. If the hon. Member will give me further particulars about the case referred to in the last part of his question, I will have inquiries made about it also. All exemptions of alien enemies from internment are at once to be reviewed.
