HC Deb 10 July 1941 vol 373 cc326-7W
Mr. Groves

asked the Home Secretary whether he will inquire into the circumstances attending the issue of a warrant for the arrest of Leonard F. Wise, 3, Hampton Road, Forest Gate, E.7, for failing to join His Majesty's forces; whether he will instruct the police to express regrets to the parents of this man for the inconvenience and sorrow caused by the visit for the execution of the warrant inasmuch as the man has been detained, under Defence Regulation 18b, I(a), in the Isle of Man since 30th July, 1940; and whether he will take the necessary steps to ensure that repetition of this procedure will not occur?

Mr. H. Morrison

On the information given, no record of this incident can be traced. If my hon. Friend can furnish further particulars including the date of the visit, further inquiries will be made.
