HC Deb 20 May 1936 vol 312 cc1176-7

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government is considering making representations to the German Government as to the undesirability of the German Embassy in London facilitating the activities of the German secret police?


No, Sir.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in the "Times" of 6th May it was reported that Dr. Wesemann had stated in evidence that he had been in frequent consultation with the Secretary of the German Embassy in London and that the late German Ambassador and Prince Bismarck were well aware of the fact that he was an agent of the German secret police, and does not the right hon. Gentleman think in those circumstances that some action should be taken?


I am assured by the German Embassy that when Dr. Wesemann offered on his own initiative to supply them with information regarding the activities of certain groups of German emigrés, he was referred, in the manner prescribed by official usage, to the appropriate department of the German Government.

Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
