HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 c825

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."
