§ Mr. MILLS
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to an application to the Commissioner of the Police for the Metropolis by Mr. F. H. Boettcher, who has been resident in this country for the last 34 years, for registration as a stateless person; and whether, in view of the fact that the applicant has already satisfied the Public Trustee on this point so as to secure the release of property seized during the War and has also obtained the grant of letters of administration to other property from the Probate Division of the High Court, instructions may be given for his registration to be modified accordingly?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The question of the manner in which this alien should be registered is quite distinct from any question which may have been decided with regard to his property by the authorities mentioned, and as at present advised I am not prepared to issue any special instructions in the matter.
