§ Mr. Riley
asked the Home Secretary how many persons have been arrested under the Defence of the Realm Regulations; how many are at present detained in custody; how many have been charged 451W with specific offences; what number have been brought to trial; and how many are still being detained without being charged with specific offences?
§ Sir J. Anderson
I assume that this question relates to persons arrested under regulation 18B, since, as regards all the other regulations, any offender against such regulations must be charged with a specific offence and brought before a court without delay. As regards persons detained under regulation 18B, I would refer the hon. Member to the information given in a reply to-day to a question by the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies).
