38. Mrs. Braddock
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is yet able to give a reply regarding service personnel in the Outram Road Civil Prison, Singapore.
§ The Secretary of State for War (Mr. Bellenger)
My hon. Friend should by now have received a letter dealing with this matter.
In view of the fact that this is a Question placed on the Order Paper, and that I am not the only one in the House interested in this matter, does not the Minister think that the answer should have been given to the House and not sent in a letter to myself?
§ Mr. Bellenger
I am quite prepared, if the House desires it, to read the letter out but I have answered the Question on the Order Paper.
In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I wish to give notice that I will raise the matter again at the earliest possible moment.
