HC Deb 13 February 1939 vol 343 cc1392-3W
Commander Bower

asked the Home Secretary whether he will obtain from those organisations in this country who have Spanish children from Bilbao and elsewhere in their charge, a formal guarantee that in no circumstances will they be sent to any other country than Spain?

Mr. Lloyd

When these children were admitted to this country the committee responsible for bringing them here said their intention was that the children should return to Spain when circumstances permitted, and my right hon. Friend has heard of no suggestion that there is any change in this plan.
