§ 11. Mr. RONALD McNEILL
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware of the indignation excited by the published statement that the German prisoner of war, Lieutenant von Tirpitz, son of the German admiral responsible for the submarine piracy, has been released on parole and is permitted to enjoy the hospitality of friends, while British prisoners of war in Germany are subjected to rigorous confinement; and whether, with a view to reassuring the public, he will make known where Lieutenant von Tirpitz is now interned?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY Of STATE for WAR (Mr Tennant)
But for the hon. Gentleman's question I should not have been aware that there has been any indignation. As Lieutenant von Tirpitz has never been released from Dyffryn Aled, Denbighshire, on parole or otherwise since he was interned there last autumn, the hon. Gentleman will agree with me that the emotion has been wasted.
