asked the Home Secretary what information the Government have with regard to the people of the Channel Islands who have been deported by the Germans, in particular, as to the conditions of their confinement; and whether the International Red Cross have been able to make any arrangements for sending them parcels of food and clothing?
Lists have so far been received from the German Government of some 800 persons, including women and children, interned in an officers' camp in Germany. The International Red Cross Committee immediately extended the British Red Cross weekly food parcel service to these people and the Home Office have informed the next of kin in this country. It is expected that the persons interned in Germany will be allowed the privileges to which prisoners of war are entitled as regards correspondence and food parcels. Friends in this country have already received postcards from some of them.
