HC Deb 14 April 1919 vol 114 cc2554-5W

asked the Home Secretary how many persons are interned at the present moment under Regulation 14B of the Defence of the Realm Act; and whether he will state their names, nationalities, and the dates of their respective arrests?


There are at present sixty-six persons interned under Orders made at various dates from the 14th July, 1915, to the 2nd August, 1918, under Defence of the Realm Regulation 14B.

Nationality. Males. Females.
British 37 4
German 2 1
