HC Deb 08 March 1945 vol 408 cc2245-6W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now review the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a doctor of medicine of German origin but a naturalised British subject, who has been detained for five years, whose release was recommended soon after his original detention by the Advisory Committee, but who was rearrested after a few months without any reasons being furnished.

Mr. H. Morrison

In accordance with the policy which I have frequently stated to the House, the case to which my hon. Friend refers has been kept constantly under review, and I have been satisfied that it is necessary in the interests of national security to continue detention. I had already received a copy of the representations of which my hon. Friend has sent me details, and am taking them into consideration in a further review of the case which I am now making. I will inform my hon. Friend of my decision in due course.
