§ The Deputy Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)
Although a large number of attacks are made on shipping in the Channel, we have no knowledge that any of the ships attacked were carrying Channel Islanders.
§ Mr. Attlee
I am not quite sure what my hon. Friend means. Certainly, they are not treated with any scant consideration by this Government. They get very little consideration from our enemies.
§ Major Petherick
Will my right hon. Friend be in a position to make a general statement about the fate of the Channel Islanders, who, after all, are subjects of the British Crown, before the House rises?
