HC Deb 23 May 1940 vol 361 c332W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he will consult with the Government of South Africa with a view to their assuming responsibility for offering asylum in South Africa to Dutch refugees from the Nazi destruction of Holland?

Mr. Shakespeare

The matter is, of course, one for His Majesty's Government in the Union of South Africa. Their attention is being drawn to the suggestion made by my hon. Friend.
