§ 43. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why Major R. A. Farran, of the Palestine police, was recently arrested.
Mr. Creech Jones
The circumstances of Major Farran's arrest were given in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) on 2nd July, to which I have nothing to add.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
Could my right hon. Friend ask the authorities concerned to make up their minds as quickly as possible about the charge on which this officer is to be tried, and that the trial, when it does take place, should be held in public?
