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a conviction for a currency offence was dismissed by the London Sessions' Appeal Committee on 4th December, has now been revoked; and, if not, how soon this will be done?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.
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.
