HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1410W
Mr. Hewlett

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the latest information in his possession on the treatment of the Jews in Hungary.

Mr. Eden

I am glad to be able to announce that according to information reaching His Majesty's Government, deportation of Jews from Hungary has ceased until the Swiss Government have completed the evacuation of Jews in certain categories whom the Hungarian Government appear to be ready to allow to leave the country. It is reported that among such categories are all Jewish children in Hungary under the age of ten years and in possession of visas for other countries, and also all Jews in Hungary, either adults or children, who have been pronounced by the Government of Palestine as eligible for admission into Palestine.
