asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Mr. Cymbalist has been informed that he cannot write to his solicitors in relation to the pending application for the quashing or revision of his conviction and sentence except once a fortnight and then only by using his privilege of one fortnightly letter to write to his solicitor instead of to his family.

Mr. Cymbalist has not been informed to the effect stated, and he has in fact been allowed many special letters to his solicitor and to other persons about his case On one occasion, of his own accord, he used his fortnightly letter to write to his solicitor; if he had asked for a special letter on that occasion it would have been granted.
