According to figures supplied by the Eire authorities, the official staff of the German Legation is composed of six persons, together with three typists. The total number of Germans registered under the Eire Aliens Order is 283, of whom 136 are refugees. In addition there are 223 Germans who are interned. There are also three Japanese in Eire, all of whom are connected with the Japanese Consulate.
