HC Deb 17 October 1946 vol 427 cc253-4W
110. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how it is possible, in view of the withdrawal of Regulation 18B, for him to continue restrictions on the movements of five former detainees under that regulation; what national interest would be threatened by releasing these restrictions; and why no case has been brought against the said individuals.

Mr. Ede

As regards the remainder of the Question, I can add nothing to the replies which I gave to Questions on this matter on 1st August.
