asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has now obtained the list found in Germany of British citizens to be arrested on the invasion of this country, and whether he will publish the names.

I have asked for this list to be sent from Germany, and I understand that a copy is now on its way. I feel confident that my right hon. Friend will see no objection to publishing the names of those whom the Nazis proposed to arrest when they invaded Britain.

Was any similar list found in Germany of potential British Quislings likely to be helpful to Hitler?

I have not heard of it, but I will make a particular point of inquiry.

Is the list referred to the one that has already received considerable publicity, and, if so, does the Minister regard it as an authentic document, considering the motley collection it is?

I have no information whether my hon. Friend's name appears on the list, but it is authentic, as far as I know.
