HC Deb 13 November 1940 vol 365 c1712
Mr. Wedgwood

(by Private Notice) asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to a fine of £100 imposed upon Mr. Leighton-Morris for removing a time-bomb from a house without authorisation, and in view of the courageous nature of the action, will he consider remitting the fine and arranging for some reward to he given to Mr. Leighton-Morris?

The Prime Minister (Mr. Churchill)

I understand that notice has not yet been received of this Question; but the episode has certainly attracted as much attention in Government circles as out of doors. Without making any announcement on the subject, it is probable that some statement will be made at an early stage.

Mr. Wedgwood

I sent the notice to the Home Secretary and at the same time I sent it to you, Mr. Speaker, delivering it by hand yesterday.

The Prime Minister

I hope that mystery will be cleared up.
