HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 cc1285-6
36. Major HUNT

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the fact that persons of enemy alien origin have become naturalised and changed their names during the War as well as before it in order to keep German capital and businesses in this country, he can now say what steps the Government have taken in these cases to get rid of German commercial and money interests during and after the War?


I am not sure that the matter is one in which I have any jurisdiction. But if the hon. and gallant Member will furnish me with any instances I shall be glad to give them consideration.
