HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 cc2407-8W
Rear-Admiral Beamish

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if he is aware that a military vehicle driven by a Canadian soldier without authority, caused serious personal injuries and material damage to the property of Mr. Alfred Tate, of Portslade, on 15th June, 1944, and that the Canadian Government refuse to take any responsibility; whether other Governments, Dominion and otherwise, follow this policy; and what redress British subjects have against such injury and loss of property.

Mr. Emrys-Evans

My Noble Friend has no information about this incident. Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend will supply me with particulars. As regards the general position, I would refer to the reply given to him by my right hon. Friend the Attorney-General on 8th November.
