HC Deb 18 October 1945 vol 414 c1358
46. Lieut.-Colonel Martin Lindsay

asked the Prime Minister whether the ban on marriages between members of the Occupation Forces and German nationals is still in force; and whether he will give an undertaking that it will not be lifted until this House has first been given an opportunity to debate the matter.

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir, the ban is still in force. As regards an opportunity for Debate in the House, I cannot give an undertaking at the present moment.

Lieut.-Colonel Lindsay

Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that a premature lifting of the ban will cause great resentment in the country?

The Prime Minister
