HC Deb 30 June 1927 vol 208 cc544-5
5. Colonel DAY

asked the Home Secretary why, in returning the last Commission Rogatoire to the examining magistrate at Boulogne, who is inquiring into the murder of Nurse May Daniels, an expressed wish accompanied it from the British authorities that it should not be published; and was there any special reason for this request?


The only request for non-publication related to the present whereabouts of a witness, which had been disclosed in confidence to the authorities here by that witness's representatives in order that the Commission Rogatoire might be executed as requested by the French authorities.

Colonel DAY

I am quits sure that if everybody knew the British Government as well as the hon. Member they would know that they have nothing to hide.
