HC Deb 26 March 1946 vol 421 c215
73. Mr. Piratin

asked the Secretary of State for War how many persons were taken into custody in Singapore, on 15th February, for interrogation and not charged with any offence; for how long such persons were detained without trial; and by what authority such detention is permissible.

Mr. Lawson

The information asked for is not available in the War Office, but as soon as I have obtained it from Malaya I will write to the hon. Member.
