HC Deb 20 February 1918 vol 103 c718
15. Major HUNT

asked the Undersecretary for War whether the wives and female relatives of Germans who have been fighting against us in Africa are allowed to live in their own houses in Dar-es-Salaam and are maintained and fed by the British Government; whether they are allowed to do just as they like and walk about at pleasure; and whether he will take steps to have them sent back to Germany or interned?


Under the terms of surrender of Dar-es-Salaam, German non-combatants were permitted to remain in the town, where they are under supervision, which precludes the necessity for internment. Arrangements will, it is hoped, be made shortly for the removal of German subjects from East Africa.
