HC Deb 14 June 1938 vol 337 c73W
Colonel Nathan

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the recent attempt upon Lord Nuffield, he will consider the introduction of legislation imposing sufficiently deterrent penalties upon kidnapping and attempts at kidnapping?

Mr. Lloyd

The offences in question are, I am glad to say, of rare occurrence in this country, and my right hon. Friend has no information tending to show that the penalties provided by the existing law are not sufficiently deterrent.
