HC Deb 24 August 1945 vol 413 cc959-60W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that British civilian internees desirous of resettling abroad are much hampered as they have no official documents to prove their internment by the enemy; and if, to assist them in their rehabilitation, he will issue on application suitable certificates to those entitled to them.

Mr. McNeil

I have not heard that any British subjects are encountering difficulty on this score, but His Majesty's consular officers would be in a position, in appro- priate cases, to issue documents to British subjects, as proposed, to facilitate their resettlement abroad.
