HC Deb 03 August 1939 vol 350 c2630W
Mr. Thomas

asked the Prime Minister whether he has received any further information regarding Miss Church and Mr. Lennox, who are in the hands of the German secret police near Vienna?

Mr. Butler

The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed His Majesty's Embassy on 24th July that the cases of Miss Church and Mr. Lennox were in the hands of the military authorities, and that no details could be furnished until they had reported. The Acting Consul-General at Vienna is also keeping in close touch with the situation.
