HC Deb 12 February 1947 vol 433 cc341-2
8. Mr. Wilkes

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he is yet in a position to state whether compassionate release or extended leave will be granted to 23356I0 G. D. Largue, A.C.2, whose parents are in hospital, his only relatives at home being a 10 year old brother and an 80 year old grandmother.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

My hon. Friend's letter of 14th January, for which I am grateful to him, was the first information we have received that A.C.2 Largue was in difficulties at home. My hon. Friend has, I hope, now had my letter telling him that Largue has been released.

9. Mr. Granville Sharp

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has now investigated the allegations, brought to the attention of his Department on 28th December by the hon. Member for Spen Valley, of the improper treatment whilst under arrest, of 1681192 L.A.C. B. Dennis; and what further action he now proposes.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

I have called for a full and urgent report on the case of L.A.C. Dennis, and this report is on its way from Singapore. I will write to my hon. Friend when it has arrived and has been considered.
