HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 cc6-7
8. Major Braithwaite

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has any information as to the numbers of the personnel of the German Embassy in Dublin?

Mr. Shakespeare

I understand that the official staff of the German Legation in Dublin is composed of six persons, together with three typists.

Major-General Sir Alfred Knox

What is the number of the unofficial staff?

Mr. Henderson Stewart

Is my hon. Friend aware that it is said that the staff numbers some hundreds? What does he propose to do about that?

Mr. Shakespeare

It is very difficult to get information. Perhaps my hon. Friend will put the question down.
