HC Deb 08 April 1935 vol 300 cc804-5
59. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Home Secretary whether he knows yet why Dr. Dora Fabian committed suicide?


The question how this lady came by her death is a matter for determination at the inquest, and I cannot anticipate what the verdict will be.


Can the hon. and gallant Member assure the House that the lady in question was not threatened by the police with deportation?

Viscountess ASTOR

Will the hon. and gallant Gentleman bear in mind that the friends of this lady who were in communication with her three or four days before said that she was in extraordinarily good spirits and full of interest in her work?


Can I have an answer to my question? Can the hon. and gallant Gentleman assure us that the lady was not threatened with deportation?


That point does not arise out of this question. I have answered what I was asked and I must have notice if further details are required.


Will the hon and gallant Gentleman investigate the aspect of the matter put to him by the right hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel: Wedgwood) before the inquest takes place?
