HC Deb 12 February 1947 vol 433 c354
27. Vice-Admiral Taylor

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster the reason for the termination of Dr. Zimmer's administrative interest in the Haren schools, or any other school within the British zone, and his supersession by a Warsaw Government representative.

Mr. J. Hynd

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer I gave the hon. Member for Cambridge University (Mr. Pickthorn) on 5th February. Pending the completion of inquiries, the instruction terminating Dr. Zimmer's administrative interest in these schools has been suspended.

Vice-Admiral Taylor

I do not know the answer given on the previous occasion. Was Dr. Zimmer not selected by the teachers, and was that not in accordance with the United Nations' resolution?

Mr. Hynd

the Committee in question is not recognised by the Control Commission. It is quite an unofficial organisation doing a certain amount of good work, and normally its activities are not interfered with. The reasons for Dr. Zimmer s removal are, as stated, certain propaganda activities, and his removal has been suspended pending inquiries.
