23. Mr. G. Strauss

asked the Home Secretary why investigation has recently been made by his Department into the affairs of the British Glycerine Manufacturers, Limited?

Sir S. Hoare

The investigation was made by the police at the request of the Home Office in connection with the case of an alien concerned in the company, which is under consideration.

Mr. Strauss

Sir S. Hoare

A full investigation is being made into all the circumstances. I could not add to my answer until I have received the result.
