HC Deb 30 November 1931 vol 260 c741

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, having regard to the bearing of recent State prosecutions in Germany on the questions of disarmament and budgetary limitation of armaments, lie can give the House any information as to the grounds on which a foreigner has been convicted of treason by the High Court at Breslau for attending the rally of the Stalhelm, a body described by the German Government as a private association with no military aims; and whether he can explain the circumstances in which a German editor and airman have been convicted by the Supreme Court at Leipsic of the betrayal of military secrets in an article on the civil aviation budget of the Reich?


I have requested His Majesty's Charge d'Affaires at Berlin to furnish me with a report on this subject, and I will not fail to communicate this to my right hon. Friend as soon as it is received.
