§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the Home Secretary if the is aware that society, calling itself the Emergency Committee for the Assistance of Germans, Austrians, and Hungarians in Distress, of 27, Chancery Lane, and registered under the War Charities Act, 1916, is sending out circulars asking for money to enable it to send clothing, food, and luxuries as above; and if such things have his sanction?972W
§ Mr. SHORTT
The circulars referred to are directed, as I understand, to procuring clothing, food, and necessaries for nursing mothers and infants in Germany and Austria, and the committee inform me that they have the specific sanction of the Supreme Council of Supply and Relief now sitting in Paris. No sanction on my part is required.
