HC Deb 26 January 1954 vol 522 cc1600-1
43. Mrs. Mann

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations were made to the Coatbridge police for permission to interview Hugh Green, arrested on 22nd November, before his conviction on 23rd November; by whom were the representations made; and what was the nature of the reply.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

I am informed that no such representations were made.

Mrs. Mann

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that he has already given me that reply and that we are ready to submit incontrovertible evidence that arrangements were made, and of the names of the persons in the police office to whom they were made? Will he look into the matter further if he is supplied with this further information?

Mr. Stewart

Yes, my right hon. Friend will be very ready to look at any evidence the hon. Lady cares to present to him.
