§ Mr. Rankin
asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland if he is aware that Mr. William Smith of 59 Holmfauldhead Road, in the division of the hon. Member for Govan, is presently detained in Barlinnie Prison for an indefinite period though no charge is preferred against him; and if he will inquire into the reasons for this.
§ The Solicitor-General for Scotland
I am investigating the circumstances of the case referred to, and, as I expect to complete my inquiries during the Christmas Adjournment, I shall communicate with the hon. Member for Glasgow, Govan (Mr. Rankin) by letter.
