HC Deb 27 January 1960 vol 616 cc36-7W
70. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further reports Her Majesty's Government have received regarding the appointment of former Nazis to judicial positions in Germany.

Mr. R. Allan

This is a matter for the Federal German authorities who are continuing their investigations. Since my right hon. Friend's answer of 23rd March last, we have heard that three judges have been suspended in Schleswig Holstein, and that in West Berlin four judges will be compulsorily retired. In Baden-Wurttemberg proposals for a special commission to examine these allegations are to be considered by the Landtag. Elsewhere investigations are continuing.
