§ 48. Sir J. WALTON
asked the Prime Minister whether it is intended to introduce legislation to amend the Act of Settlement or other Acts in order to prevent British subjects of enemy birth having the right to sit in the Council Chamber of the King as Privy Councillors?
§ Sir J. WALTON
Why should the nation be called upon to make unlimited sacrifices in order to crush our enemies whilst the Government deal tenderly and protectively with men of enemy race?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am rather sorry my hon. Friend put his question in that alternative form. There is no reason to think naturalised British subjects sworn in His Majesty's Privy Council are not loyal subjects of this country and will not do their duty.
