asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in regard to German medical missionaries in Tanganyika territory who were at first allowed to continue their work, provided that they gave their parole, but were interned when Italy entered the war; whether they are now being permitted to return to their stations and resume their medical work; and, if not, when is it proposed to do this.
