70. Mr. BUTLER LLOYD
asked the Under-Secretary for War if he is aware that a German prisoner of war, in an advanced condition of leprosy, has been kept for many months, in spite of repeated 607 remonstrances from the officer of the guard of the King's Shropshire Light Infantry, within a few paces of the sentry and guardroom at Handsforth, near Manchester; and whether he will take immediate steps to have him removed to a more suitable locality?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Special accommodation has been prepared for this prisoner of war at a hospital at Dartford, and he is now being removed there.
Mr. EDMUND HARVEY
Would it not be possible to make arrangements to send this prisoner back in the next party of exchanged prisoners?
Would it not be in the interests of this country as well as in the interests of this unfortunate man?
