asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the conditions under which women suspects in Palestine have been detained have been improved both as to location and the provision of adequate medical attention?
The civilian internment camps in Palestine were inspected earlier this year by the delegate of the International Red Cross Committee, who recorded in his report that the camps had left an excellent impression. It is in accordance with the policy of His Majesty's Government and of the authorities in Palestine to maintain this high standard. My Noble Friend will, of course, make inquiries about any individual complaint when it is brought to his attention.
The hon. Member was good enough to bring to my attention the case to which he refers, but without any method by which I could institute an inquiry or trace it, it was so vague in its character.
