HC Deb 22 September 1915 vol 74 c438
6. Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any Germans, naturalised or otherwise, are still at large at Singapore or anywhere in the Straits Settlements or the Federated Malay States?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Bonar Law)

All German subjects in the Straits Settlements and the Federated Malay States, except those males over fifty-five and women and children who under the arrangement with the German Government have been sent back to Germany, either have been or are being transferred to Australia. No restrictions have, as far as I am aware, been placed upon persons of enemy origin in the Straits Settlements or the Federated Malay States who are naturalised British subjects, but I am not aware whether there are any such persons in the Colony or the Federated Malay States.
