HC Deb 26 October 1943 vol 393 c19
30. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary of State for War what was the result of the court of inquiry held into the circumstances relating to the death of a soldier at Fort Darland detention barracks?

Sir J. Grigg

The proceedings and findings of the military court of inquiry set up as a result of this case have been received, and the findings will be considered in conjunction with the report of the inquiry of which Mr. Justice Oliver was chairman.

Mr. Bellenger

Will the House have an opportunity of becoming acquainted with the Report?

Sir J. Grigg

I am certainly prepared in due course to make a statement to the House on the findings and the action taken.

Mr. Driberg

In that case, could the right hon. Gentleman say what would be the position of hon. Members of this House who gave evidence before that inquiry, since it was held in camera?

Sir J. Grigg

Not without notice.
