§ Mr. SPEAKER
I have to report to the House that to-day I received the following letter from the hon. Member for Peebles and Southern (Captain Ramsay):
§ "Dear Mr. SPEAKER,—I have now been for nearly a fortnight under preventive arrest with no charge whatever preferred against me. I claim, Sir, that this preventive arrest constitutes a grave violation of the privileges and vital rights of Members of this Honourable House, and beg that you will convey this my appeal to the House of Commons.
§ Yours sincerely,
§ Archibald Ramsay."
