HC Deb 22 October 1940 vol 365 c950W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can state without prejudice to the national interests, the reasons for retaining German airmen as prisoners of war in this country in preference to sending them to Canada or some other Dominion, together with the numbers of such prisoners here at the present time?

Sir E. Grigg

My hon. Friend is under a misapprehension. Prisoners of war are sent overseas as opportunity offers.
