HC Deb 01 August 1918 vol 109 c609

asked the Prime Minister what steps he proposes to take in regard to the recommendations of his Committee that all aliens should be forthwith removed from prohibited areas, and also with regard to the recommendations as to internment camps?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. As regards the first part of the question, all alien enemies have been removed from prohibited areas, except those referred to in the Report of the hon. and gallant Member for Knutsford and Sir Louis Dane, presented to Parliament on the 7th December, 1916. The cases of these exempted persons will now be reviewed by the Advisory Committee. As regards the second part, the Government, after careful consideration, did not think it necessary to adopt the suggestion.
