HC Deb 05 February 1918 vol 101 c2147W

asked the Home Secretary whether the internment of J. B. Askew, under the powers of Regulation 14 B still continues; when this man's case was last reviewed by him and the Advisory Committee; and whether there is any ground of public policy which can be stated to the House to justify this man's continued internment considering his personal character and reputation?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. This man's case was considered by the Advisory Committee in February last. I reviewed the case last month, and decided that it was not one which I would be justified in asking the Advisory Committee to reconsider. The internment Order was made on the ground of Askew's strong and recent hostile associations.
