HC Deb 12 June 1947 vol 438 cc1339-40
58. Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if evidence has been obtained to prove what body is responsible for sending letter bombs recently to certain citizens in this country.

Mr. Ede

Police inquiries into this matter are still proceeding, and I am not in a position to make any statement at present.

Mr. Lipson

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether there is any evidence to justify the present statements associating this with terrorist activities?

Mr. Ede

In the present state of the inquiries, I think that any information which I gave as to the line the investigators are pursuing might hinder their work.
