HC Deb 18 June 1941 vol 372 c674W
Mr. Boothby

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the recent observations made by His Majesty's judges from the King's Bench, he will give instructions that all British citizens and friendly aliens now detained are to be informed of the specific allegations or charges made against them and given some opportunity of reply?

Mr. H. Morrison

I am most anxious that in such cases proper opportunities shall be given to persons who are detained to answer any allegations made against them and to explain their activities, and I indicated the arrangements made for this purpose in my reply to my hon. Friend's Question on 8th May.
