§ 35. Colonel Wheatley
asked the Under, Secretary of State for Burma if he is aware that internees who have been India recuperating have been sent back to Singapore to the Syme Road Camp, where many of them suffered for three and a half years at the hands of the Japanese, owing to the fact that the military authorities are occupying the homes of these people; and if he will take steps for this procedure to cease at once.
§ Mr. George Hall:
I have been asked t5 reply I am aware that, owing to the acute shortage of accommodation in Singapore, the military authorities were planning the reception in transit camps of considerable numbers of evacuees who had been repatriated from India. I have no further information but I am asking for a report from the Governor who took ever the administration at the beginning of April and I will communicate with the horn and gallant Member when I receive it.
