asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what were the reasons for the release from internment of Herr Hugo Stinnes, Junior, onetime director of the Rhine-Westphalian Coal Syndicate and Dr. Alfred Hugenberg, Minister in the first Hitler Government.

Hugo Stinnes, Junior, was released in August, 1946, because there was nothing in his record to justify his continued internment. Alfred Hugenberg was released from internment in June, 1947, because he is no longer considered a danger to the occupation. He is, however, debarred from holding any position of influence and changing his residence without police permission. His accounts are blocked and he cannot dispose of his property.
