asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the frequency of burglaries in the Hanover district of Germany; and whether he is satisfied with the measures taken by the German civil police in safeguarding the property and households of British personnel.
I understand that before the arrest last December of 10 members of the Hanover City Police, burglaries were particularly frequent in this district. The position is now better. All practicable measures, including the institution of extra police patrols, have been taken to protect British families and my right hon. Friend is satisfied that the German police are doing everything in their power to combat these burglaries.
