HC Deb 09 October 1940 vol 365 cc382-3W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Secretary of State for War whether consideration has been given to the advisability of sending all captured German airmen to be held in custody in Canada or some other Dominion; and, if so, whether arrangements could be made for such prisoners to travel in ships taking evacuated children to similar destinations?

Mr. Eden

The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." As regards the second part, my hon. Friend will, no doubt, now have seen the announcement that no more children are to be sent to the Dominions at present.
