HC Deb 18 May 1939 vol 347 c1642W
Mr. Assheton

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he is aware that American citizens and other friendly aliens, some of whom have resided in this country for a considerable time, have offered their services for civilian defence and have been rejected; and whether this is in accordance with his instructons?

Sir J. Anderson

I am not aware of the cases to which my hon. Friend may refer. As regards the general question of the enrolment of persons other than British subjects for the Civil Defence services, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on the nth May to a question by the hon. Member for North Lambeth (Mr. G. Strauss).
