HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 c837
22. Mr. Parker

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he will consider taking advantage, as shipping space becomes available, and on a voluntary basis, of the offers made by the Dominion Governments to take children and other evacuees?

Mr. Shakespeare

I would refer the hon. Member to a reply which I gave yesterday on this subject to the hon. and learned Member for Greenock (Mr. R. Gibson). I hope to be in a position to make a statement on the matter shortly.
