HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 cc549-50

asked the Prime Minister whether the Report of the Committee appointed by the Government to inquire into the treatment of the civil population of Belgium by the German army is now ready; and, if so, whether it can be laid upon the Table?


The Prime Minister has asked me to reply to this question. The Committee appointed to advise on the evidence collected on behalf of the Government as to outrages by German troops, cases of maltreatment of civilians and breaches of the laws of war has not yet reported, but I hope they will be able to do so soon.
