HC Deb 29 January 1941 vol 368 cc574-5W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Home Secretary why the decision in the case of No. 90175, D. S. Lawley, was delayed until middle December, seeing that he was detained on 3rd June and appeared before the advisory committee on 13th August?

Mr. Peake

As my right hon. Friend explained in the course of the debate on 10th December, there were some cases on which it would not have been right for him to give a decision until he had considered other comparable cases and come to conclusions on certain general questions of principle. My right hon. Friend is satisfied that as a result he has been able to deal with these cases more satisfactorily than would otherwise have been possible.
