HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 c1297
29. Major Conant

asked the Secretary of State for War whether British soldiers who have married Germans are permitted to bring their wives to this country while we are still at war with Germany.

Sir J. Griģģ

As my hon. and gallant Friend is aware fraternization between British soldiers and Germans has been forbidden by the Supreme Allied Commander and questions of marriage should not therefore arise. I have no official information about the one or two cases mentioned in the Press in which British prisoners of war are said to have married Germans.

Mr. Rhys Davies

Does the right hon. Gentleman really imagine that nature takes the slightest notice of these regulations?

Sir J. Griģģ

It may be that you cannot expel nature with a fork, but there may be other means of expelling it.
