HC Deb 07 March 1940 vol 358 c590W
Sir G. Fox

asked the Minister of Supply whether, in view of the undesirability of officers of his Department employing enemy aliens as servants, he will issue an order to the effect that such practice must cease?

Colonel Llewellin

In the case of the small proportion of the military officers employed in the Ministry who are accommodated in military quarters, King's Regulations require that special authority be obtained before an alien is employed. As regards civilian officers in the Ministry, such an instruction as my hon. Friend has in mind would raise a general question of policy and could not be confined to the Ministry of Supply.
