§ Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what evidence has been revealed by the British investigations which led to the arrest of Werner Naumann that the new German Nazi movement is being partly financed from British sources.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
As the House is aware, the case against Werner Naumann and his associates has now been transferred, at the request of Dr. Adenauer, to the German judicial authorities. It is therefore sub judice in Germany and it would be undesirable for me to make any statement on the information revealed by the British investigations, which has now been communicated to the German authorities for them to study.
§ Dr. King
Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that Herr Adenauer has himself publicly stated that the evidence which our Government handed over has revealed close financial help given by British Fascists, among others, to neo-Nazis? Since he took such excellent and resolute action in dealing with neo-Nazis in Germany, can the right hon. and learned Gentleman do something to deal with supporters and financiers of neo-Nazism in this country?
§ Mrs. Castle
Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the Questions he is answering relate to the British end of the problem and not to the German end of the problem and that there is great concern in this country as a result of Herr Adenauer's revelations on this matter? Will the Minister put in the Library the details of the evidence on which Herr Adenauer made this statement?
§ Mr. S. Silverman
I take it that the right hon. and learned Gentleman is not saying that this House is precluded, or any Minister of the Crown is precluded from discussing in the House of Commons, any matter merely because it is sub judice in a foreign court?
