15. Mr. BUTLER LLOYD
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any definite information has been received of the action which took place on 3rd November in East Africa; and if it is known whether the Germans took any prisoners on that occasion?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
Information relating to the action on the 3rd instant in East Africa has reached the War Office. The question of its publication is under consideration. I am unable to say whether the Germans took any prisoners on the occasion, but three rank and file were reported missing and, as far as I know, have not since rejoined.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Are we to understand that that consideration is in the hands of the Press Bureau?
