§ 4. Mr. RONALD McNEILL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received an official notification through the American Embassy that the thirty-nine British officers, prisoners of war, who were subjected to special treatment, including solitary confinement, in Germany, have been returned to their former places of internment; if he will say in what place each of these thirty-nine officers is now interned; and whether he is satisfied that they are all now receiving the same treatment in all respects as other officer prisoners of war?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part of the question I have asked my right hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for War to inform the hon. Member at which camp each of the thirty-nine officers was interned previously to his arrest, since that information is available at the War Office, and not at the Foreign Office. We have no reason to believe that the officers are not receiving the same treatment in all respects as other officer prisoners of war.
