HC Deb 22 December 1915 vol 77 c450
12. Sir J. SPEAR

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the ill-treatment of British prisoners in Germany, he will consider the desirability of endeavouring, through the American Minister, to induce the German Government to consent to the removal of these prisoners for internment in a neutral State, this country agreeing to similar facilities for the removal of German prisoners in England?


I have very great sympathy with this proposal, but I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland yesterday.
