§ 2. Mr. CHARLES BUXTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many persons have been expelled since January last from the Rhineland by the Inter-Allied Rhineland High Commission; how many of such persons were railway men; in how many cases were their wives and children also expelled; and how many of such expulsions were approved of by the British representative in the Inter-Allied Rhineland High Commission?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
His Majesty's Government are not in possession of the figures and details required. None of these expulsions were approved by His Majesty's High Commissioner who, as the House is aware, has instructions to abstain from all decisions of the Inter-Allied Rhineland High Commission arising out of the Franco-Belgian independent action.
§ Mr. BUXTON
Can the Under-Secretary say whether, on any occasion, the British representative has made any protest against any particular expulsion?
