HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 c44W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour and National Service whether British citizens of military age, such as Mr. W. H. Auden and Mr. Christopher Isherwood, who have gone to the United States and expressed their determination not to return to this country until war is over, will be summoned back for registration and calling up in view of the fact that they are seeking refuge abroad?

Mr. Assheton

pursuant to his reply (OFFICIAL REPORT, 13th June, 1940, col. 1365, Vol. 361) supplied the following statement:

Owing to a typographical error, the name of Mr. W. H. Auden was originally printed as Mr. W. H. Austin, and my reply accordingly referred to Mr. Austin and not to Mr. Auden. I have no information regarding the latter.
