HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c404W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider the annulment of Regulation 12 (5A), the purpose of which is no longer material now that the war in Europe is over.

Sir D. Somervell

There is no intention of retaining this Regulation longer than is necessary, but the time has not yet arrived for its revocation, since there are certain aliens detained thereunder whom it is still impracticable to deport and whom it would be unjustifiable to leave at large in this country.
