§ Sir H. NIELD
asked the Home Secretary whether he will state why, if the Allied Governments in settling the terms of the armistice with Turkey have considered it necessary to stipulate for the expulsion within one month of all German and Austrian naval, military, and civilian prisoners from the Turkish dominions, the Government persistently declines to get rid of German and Austrian civilians from the United Kingdom where their continued presence is obnoxious to the public and, in view of the continued brutality of the Germans towards British prisoners, is likely to cause a breach of the peace?
§ Sir G. CAVE
Germans and Austrians are required by the terms of armistice to be evacuated from Turkey because their presence there would be detrimental to the interests of the Allies. In this country all Germans and Austrians who could possibly be a danger to the country are interned; and all, or most of these persons will, no doubt, be repatriated as soon as the military arrangements permit.
