HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c110W
36. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that a young labour leader, named Augustin Zoroa, has been tortured at the Security Police Headquarters, Madrid; and if he will make representations to secure his release.

Mr. McNeil

His Majesty's Embassy at Madrid has already reported on this case. We have no concrete evidence of ill-treatment. No date has yet been fixed for the trial of M. Zoroa. Our Embassy will continue to keep the treatment of M. Zoroa and fifteen other prisoners under survey.
