HC Deb 07 August 1914 vol 65 c2152

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is a fact that the Austrian and German school girls at Upper Chine College, Isle of Wight, have been ordered to leave the country; whether there are means for them to reach their homes: whether he can give an assurance that any order involving hardships to young students will not be persisted in?


The hon. Member gave me notice only a few minutes ago of this question. I made inquiries, where possible, and I think I may tell him there is no ground, so far as I know, for the suggestion he made. The German students, of course, will have to register. I think I can assure him the students of this college will not be interfered with.
