HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 cc1564-5W
Captain Strickland

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, what progress has been made with regard to the suggested exchange of internee women, children and old men, in Palestine and Germany, respectively, made last January to the German Government through the United States Embassy; and whether steps can be taken to expedite the matter before the coming winter?

Mr. Law

Negotiations are in progress and the lists of persons to be exchanged are in course of preparation. The desirability of effecting the exchange before winter sets in is being kept in mind.
