§ Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Home Secretary whether he intends to release any of the internees now in Australia for return to this country and, if not, does he intend that wives will be allowed to travel to join their husbands, either at their own or at the expense of the State.
§ Mr. H. Morrison
As regards both parts of the Question, I would refer to the replies given to Questions by the hon. Member for North Lambeth (Mr. G. Strauss) on 21st January, and by the Junior Member for the Combined English Universities (Mr. Harvey) on 6th February. My representative, Major Layton, who arrived in Australia some weeks ago, is endeavouring to take advantage of any-shipping facilities available for the return to this country of internees who are unfit for further internment, or have wives in this country, or in whose case release has been authorised.
