§ Lieut.-Commander Fletcher
asked the Prime Minister whether he will call the attention of the German Government to the fact that Mr. Lennox, who was arrested in Vienna by the secret police on 26th March, has not been allowed to communicate with his wife since that date and request that he may be given permission to do so?
§ Mr. Butler
His Majesty's Consul-General at Vienna obtained from the local authorities a promise that Mr. Lennox would be allowed to communicate with his family, and on learning that Mrs. Lennox was not, in fact, receiving any letters, repeatedly reminded the local authorities of their promise.
Instructions were recently sent to His Majesty's Ambassador at Berlin to pro test against the delay in ending the period of close arrest.
