HC Deb 22 July 1936 vol 315 c460W

asked the Home Secretary (1) whether his attention has been called to the judgment delivered at Manchester Assizes by Mr. Justice Atkinson on 17th July, in the case of Lowick versus Philip and Adolph Lazarus; and whether he proposes to revoke the certificate of naturalisation of Philip Lazarus;

(2) whether his attention has been called to the facts disclosed by the judgment of Mr. Justice Atkinson at Manchester, in the case of Lowick versus Lazarus and Lazarus; that the plaintiff, a young married woman, was arrested on a charge of forgery and falsification and was harshly treated by the police; and whether he will take steps to initiate a public inquiry into all the circumstances of the case, including the action of the police in their treatment of a girl of 19 of previous unblemished reputation, whilst under remand after the refusal of bail upon their recommendation?


I understand that notice of appeal has been given in this case, and as the case is still before the Court it would not be proper for me to make any comment on the matters raised.
