§ 53. Mr. WILLIAM YOUNG
asked the Prime Minister whether Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein, son of Her Royal Highness Princess Christian, is known to be engaged as a combatant in the enemy forces or in any capacity connected with the German army; whether he was in this country at the outbreak of hostilities; and whether, in that case, any efforts were made to detain him?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein is, I am informed, serving in a military capacity in Germany. I have no information as to whether he was in this country at the outbreak of hostilities.
§ Mr. YOUNG
Will the right hon. Gentleman, in view of his answer, have the status of this family, evidently of German sympathies, inquired into, and does he consider it either just or expedient that British taxpayers should be called upon to pay for the upkeep of this family to the extent of some £6,000 per annum?
Is the Prime Minister aware that Princess Christian had a son in the British Army who did excellent service?
