HC Deb 18 May 1916 vol 82 cc1657-8W

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the threat to a Member of this House emanating from the Travellers' Club, Piccadilly, he will say if he has had that club and the person therein calling

himself George Trevellyan searched for criminal matter and for means of executing such threats; and, if not, will he say whence that institution derives its immunity from the criminal law?


I have no knowledge of the case to which the hon. Member refers. Of course, the institution in question and its members have no special immunity from the criminal law?
