HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 c1823W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for War if orders for non-fraternisation with displaced persons issued to British troops will now be cancelled as these people are Allies.

Sir J. Grigg

The non-fraternisation order applies to Germans only and I am not aware that it has been applied to others. It is possible that it has sometimes been necessary to prevent British troops from mixing with displaced persons among whom some were suffering from or had been in contact with infectious diseases.
