HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc1139-40
16. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster why Miss Monika Dybowska and her child, at present in the Displaced Persons Camp, Neustadt Holstein, Germany, is not being given facilities to join her fianceé Mr. J. Hunter, 21 Alexandra Terrace, Charles-town, Weymouth, Dorset, despite the fact that a visa for Miss Dybowska and her child to enter this country was authorized by the Secretary of State for the Home Department on 28th September last.

Mr. J. Hynd

Facilities are being given, and the British Red Cross Society are now making the actual arrangements for Miss Dybowska and her child to come to this country.

Viscount Hinchingbrooke

Can the hon. Gentleman say how long it will take before she actually leaves?

Mr. Hynd

I am afraid I cannot give the actual time, but the arrangements are well in hand.

17. Commander Maitland

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster why the members of B I.O.S. trip No. 2053 were prevented from seeing Mr. August Claas, who could have provided useful information in regard to agricultural machinery; whether Dr. Brenner has been discharged from the firm of Gebr. Claas for Nazi sympathies; and, if so, how Dr. Brenner is now employed.

Mr. J. Hynd

Mr. Claas was in an internment camp at the time of this visit. Dr. Brenner was temporarily discharged from Gebruder Claas under de-Nazification regulations but, having won his appeal, he was subsequently reinstated in his former position.
