§ Mr. JOWETT
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?
§ Sir G. CAVE
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.
