HC Deb 18 July 1916 vol 84 cc862-3W

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if a Mr. Carl Hoesch has recently been released from internment in the Alexandra Palace; and, if so, will he state on whose authority he has been released and for what reason?


Mr. Hoesch was liberated from internment in September last by the order of my predecessor. He was released on medical grounds, the medical officer of the camp having certified that continued detention would seriously affect his health. He has been twenty years in this country and has a British wife. Two separate bonds for his good behaviour, in the sum of £1,000 each, were required and given.
