asked the Secretary of State for War whether Captains Harris, Austin, Petrie, Schofieid, Brown, Green and Jacobs, who were formerly employed as intelligence officers, censors, and commanders of camp guards at 18B detention camps are still so employed; which of them were natural-born British subjects; where not so, at what date were they or their parents naturalised; and what were their former names?

There is no record that a Captain Schofield or a Captain Austin has been employed at the camps referred to. Without particulars of their initials and their regiments I am afraid I cannot trace them. Of the other officers, all of whom are natural-born. British subjects, only Captain H. L. Brown is still employed at the camp. The last two parts of the Question do not, therefore, arise.
