§ 44. Mr. ELLIS SMITH
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the activities of the German secret service in this country, directed against individuals lawfully resident here, as partially disclosed in the Wesemann trial in Switzerland; what steps he is taking, or will take, to put a stop to such activities; and whether he will hold an investigation and report thereupon to the House?
§ Sir J. SIMON
Such activities are, of course, closely watched by the responsible authoritites. Appropriate action would be taken in any case where it was considered expedient. It would not, however, be in the public interests to detail the measures which are taken by the authorities to deal with activities of this kind.
