§ 20. Major Stourton
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been drawn to the active intervention in the West Derbyshire by-election of a lady of Russian nationality; and if he will take steps to prohibit such activities on the part of individuals other than British subjects.

§ Mr. Shinwell
If this lady had intervened on behalf of the other candidate, would the hon. and gallant Gentleman have asked the Question?
