§ 43. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is taking any and, if so, what steps in connection with the arrest in Germany of Mr. W. W. Mann and the Indian Tagore?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir John Simon)
In the case of Mr. Mann, who was arrested during a police raid on a club 258 in Berlin and has now been released, His Majesty's Ambassador has addressed an official note to the German Minister for Foreign Affairs asking that a full investigation may be made into the circumstances. As regards the second person named, it is reported that he was arrested near the Austro-Bavarian frontier. It is not, I understand, certain that he is a British subject, but His Majesty's Consul-General at Munich has been instructed to make inquiries of the Bavarian authorities. I am informed that a report is on the way.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Can the right hon. Gentleman indicate to our Consul-General in Munich our appreciation that he is in front with this question, and is making inquiries before he is pressed to do so by this House?
