§ 8. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, despite their unauthorised entry into this country, and taking into account their ill-treatment at the hands of the Poles, he will allow Erich Schillinzki and Gustav Schrinzog, both of Danzig, to stay in this country as land workers or miners, instead of ordering their deportation to certain persecution.
§ Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
Will my right hon. Friend take into account the earnest pleas put in on behalf of these two men by Mr. Daniel Hopkin, the Marlborough Street magistrate, when he remanded them? I believe that they are actually Germans.
§ Earl Winterton
Would the right hon. Gentleman consider in this case, and in 541 all other cases of great difficulty which may cause terrible hardship to the individual, consulting the International Refugee Organisation before sending these people to what may be torture in a slave camp under Soviet control?
§ Mr. Sydney Silverman
Would my right hon. Friend bear in mind that if he is looking for people who suffered badly from racial enemies, and who are looking for refuge with a view to coming into this country, there are many people who would have prior claims?
