HC Deb 11 June 1940 vol 361 cc1115-6
27. Colonel Wedgwood

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has considered sending German prisoners and Nazi or fifth column internees to St. Helena, where the Boer prisoners thrived in the Boer war, and where they could largely feed themselves?

Mr. Law

The question of the disposal of prisoners of war and internees is under consideration.

Colonel Wedgwood

Will the Department bear in mind the possibilities of St. Helena?

Mr. Law

Yes, Sir; all possibilities are being considered.
