asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the certificate of naturalisa- tion of Hugo Friedberger, whose appeal against a conviction for a currency offence was dismissed by the London Sessions' Appeal Committee on 4th December, has now been revoked; and, if not, how soon this will be done?

The procedure for the revocation of certificates of naturalisation is governed by the provisions of Section 7 of the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act, 1914, as amended by the Act of 1919, and I have decided that this case shall be referred for inquiry to the Committee appointed under the provisions of that Section.

When will my right hon. Friend know what steps are being taken?

The only step I can take is to refer the matter to the Committee. If my hon. and gallant Friend looks up the provisions of the law, he will realise that I cannot say when the Committee will finish their inquiry.
