HC Deb 20 January 1942 vol 377 c225W
Mr. Graham White

asked the Home Secretary what is the interval of time between the detention of a person under Regulation 18B and the consideration of the case by the advisory committee?

Mr. Peake

All such cases are heard by the committee as soon as possible after the detainee has made objections against the Order to the committee, has been furnished by the chairman, in accordance with paragraph (5) of the Regulation, with particulars of the grounds of the Order, and has been allowed a reasonable time to consider these particulars. The interval varies in individual cases, but it does not now ordinarily exceed three weeks.

Sir R. Gower

asked the Home Secretary how the cost of maintaining the Mosleys in Holloway gaol is made up?

Mr. H. Morrison

The arrangement for certain married couples to be detained together in Holloway Prison does not involve any appreciable difference in the cost. The cost is approximately the same whether the husband is detained in one prison and the wife in another or both are in the same establishment.
