HC Deb 22 July 1936 vol 315 c463W
Lieut.-Commander FLETCHER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will cause the British Ambassador in Brazil to inquire of the Brazilian Government if Arthur Evert and his wife Elsie are alive, having regard to the fact that their relatives have had no news of them since March, 1935, and have no diplomatic representative through whom they can make such inquiries?


No, Sir. Evert is not a British subject and the matter is not one in which His Majesty's Government can intervene.
