HC Deb 22 February 1934 vol 286 cc483-4
12. Mr. MANDER

asked the Home Secretary whether His Majesty's Government are prepared to conform with the action of those Governments which have signified permission for M. Dimitroff and the other Bulgarians recently found not guilty in the Reichstag fire trial at Leipzig to come to their countries?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to the hon. Member for Dorset East (Mr. Hall-Caine) on Monday last, to which I have nothing to add.


Does my right hon Friend think, in view of the very special circumstances in this case, that it would be in accordance with British traditions of freedom to receive any such application in the most sympathetic manner possible?
