§ 71. Major Symonds
asked the Secretary of State for War if marriages are permitted between British soldiers and Hungarian women; and if he will remove the ban on marriages between British soldiers and Austrian women, in view of the fact that Austria is regarded as a liberated country.
No instructions have been issued by the War Office prohibiting marriages between members of His Majesty's Forces and Hungarian subjects, but it is within the discretion of a Commander-in-Chief to refuse facilities for marriages with enemy aliens or to forbid such marriages in the interests of security. The ban on marriages with Austrian subjects is at present under consideration.
