HC Deb 12 March 1951 vol 485 cc108-9W
53. Mr. Dodds

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is holding up the extradition of Brynley Fussell from France.

Mr. Younger

Formal application for the extradition of Brynley Fussell was made to the French Government by His Majesty's Ambassador at Paris on 15th January, and the Ambassador was notified by the French Government on 2nd March that his extradition was agreed to. During part of this period Fussell was under detention because of offences against French law for which he was sentenced on 12th January to one month's imprisonment. The special formalities which have to be observed in extradition cases have now been completed and arrangements have been made for the transfer of Fussell to this country within the next few days.
