HC Deb 24 April 1940 vol 360 c218
84. Mr. H. Strauss

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the occupation of Denmark by the enemy, he can make any statement on the policy of His Majesty's Government regarding Danes resident in this country?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Peake)

It is not proposed to treat Danes who are resident in this country as "enemy aliens." Many of them are anxious to assist this country in its struggle against the aggressive tyranny of which Denmark has been made a victim. At the same time full precautionary measures are, of course, being taken in respect of any individuals who, whether possessing Danish or other nationality, are believed to be in sympathy with, or likely to assist, the enemy.
