HC Deb 08 May 1941 vol 371 c987W
Captain Poole

asked the Home Secretary whether he has yet reconsidered the case of internee Herbert Paul Ahlers, No. 50027; and whether he is now prepared to order his release?

Mr. H. Morrison

I have now had an opportunity of giving careful consideration to this case and have decided, in view of all the circumstances, to authorise this man's release.

Mr. White

asked the Home Secretary whether he is now in a position to add anything further, since nth February, with regard to Mr. Jacob Wollock?

Mr. Morrison

I have now decided to authorise Mr. Wollock's release.

Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Home Secretary whether Mr. Martin Littmann, a distinguished Jewish consulting engineer from Germany, is to be kept interned in spite of the fact that his services are required in connection with patents of his that are being developed and that he has never been before a tribunal and was marked C?

Mr. Morrison

This case has received the most careful consideration, but I regret that I have come to the conclusion that, on grounds of national security, I should not be justified in authorising the release of this man.
