HC Deb 08 October 1946 vol 427 cc5-6W
87. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will make a statement on the facts revealed by the American Commander-in-Chief in Germany that the Jewish Brigade with the British Army had been transporting Jews through the British zone into the American zone en route to Palestine.

Mr. Bellenger

I have made careful inquiries, but I can find no evidence that the Jewish Brigade, as such, has been transporting Jews from the British to the American zoneen route for Palestine, although there is some evidence that in- dividual soldiers gave assistance to illegal immigrants in isolated cases.
