§ Colonel YATE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether a German is employed in charge of the electric station at Dar-es-Salaam, in East Africa, at a salary of £50 per mensem, and, if so, whether a British subject could be employed on this work; and what is the amount paid to wives and families of Germans in East Africa, and whether they are interned or not?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I am afraid that I have no information as to the first part of the question. Certain allowances, I understand, are made to indigent enemies in that portion of the country which is under civil control, and the German Government has recently sent a sum of money to help them. I have no information whether any payments are made in that portion which is under military control to Germans who are not interned.
