asked the Secretary of State for War if he will state the names of the Polish camps in the Henley urban and rural districts; the number of Poles occupying these camps on the 1st April; how many of them are doing productive work; and when it is anticipated that the camps will be empty.

Approximately 400 Poles are employed on engineer-and other work for the Army and 25 in civilian jobs. I regret that I cannot give any indication when the camps will be vacated.Following is a list of these camps:
