HC Deb 10 November 1948 vol 457 c185W
25. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Mr. R. Levy, K.C., was allowed right of audience in the so-called Israeli court; and whether the arrangements for the legal representation of Mr. Sylvester in his appeal include right of audience for British counsel.

Mr. Mayhew

Mr. Levy was not allowed a special licence to plead, but he was present in court throughout, and acted as adviser to the defence. The defence at the trial was led by Mr. Jacob Salomon, a well-known local barrister, who is also representing Mr. Sylvester at the appeal. He has had right of audience throughout.
