HC Deb 02 August 1939 vol 350 cc2370-1
47. Wing-Commander James

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the growth of public anxiety at the constantly increasing number of Jewish and other refugees being admitted to and remaining in this counntry for a longer time and under different conditions than was originally laid down, he will allot an early day after the Summer Recess for a discussion upon this subject?

The Prime Minister

I am unable at this stage to make any promise in regard to special facilities for debate.

Miss Rathbone

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that humane people, who are in the majority in this country, are much more concerned over the delay in dealing with refugees than about the number admitted who are being kept out of private means?
