HC Deb 14 May 1941 vol 371 c1188
3. Major-General Sir Alfred Knox

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is possible to procure a list of British subjects interned at Besancon or other camps in France; and also, as, parcels are not sent to these people, whether money can be sent to enable them to make purchases in the local canteen?

Mr. Eden

Lists of internees have been asked for. It is understood from the protecting Power that such lists have now been despatched from Paris. The German authorities have stated that money may be sent to internees up to a total amount of 30 Reichsmarks per month. Advances for the relief of internees were made some time ago by the United States Embassy in Paris to the camps at St. Denis and Besancon.
