Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will allow friendly women enemy aliens now interned in the Isle of Man to volunteer for munition work and secure such priority for examination of their loyalty before the tribunals?

Mr. Bevin

Arrangements are being made in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary to register and submit for employment in munitions or other forms of work of national importance, women of enemy nationality who are now interned but whose release on security grounds my right hon. Friend is prepared to authorise. Questions concerning the work of the tribunals should be addressed to my right hon. Friend.
