HL Deb 10 November 1953 vol 184 cc197-8

2.44 p.m.


My Lords, I beg to ask the Question which stands in my name on the Order Paper.

[The Question was as follows:

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether any statement can now be made on the disappearance of Father Borynski in Bradford.]


My Lords, my right honourable friend the Home Secretary is informed by the Chief Constable of Bradford that the extensive inquiries which have been made since Father Borynski disappeared on July 13, 1953, have so far been unsuccessful in tracing him, but that nothing has been discovered to justify any suggestion that Father Borynski was the victim of foul play.


My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for his Answer. The episode is certainly a disquieting one, but I fully recognise that in present circumstances he cannot add to his reply.
