HC Deb 22 June 1927 vol 207 c1832
3. Colonel DAY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps are being taken to facilitate and expedite the trial of Captain Brining at Venezuela?

Mr. A. M. SAMUEL (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

I cannot at the moment make a detailed statement regarding this case, which is still sub judice, but the hon. and gallant Member may rest assured that every possible step has been taken to expedite the trial of Captain Brining.

Colonel DAY

Can the hon. Gentleman say when the last representations were made to the Venezuelan Government on this matter?


I think I would like to ask the hon. Member not to press this question, because it might do more harm than good.
