§ 10. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can say whether the Archbishop of Lemberg, arrested by the Russians in territory invaded by them and imprisoned in a Russian fortress six months ago, still lives; if so, can he give any particulars of the prison treatment in the case; whether there is any difference in substance between the offence and that for which the Cardinal 1381 Archbishop of Malines is restricted to his diocese; whether it is by direction of the Foreign Office or of the Censor the entire British Press is closed against one of these cases while giving full particulars of the other; and whether he will, on the principle of reciprocity, suggest to the Russian Government to concede to the Archbishop of Lemberg treatment similar to that accorded by the Germans to the Archbishop of Malines for an identical offence?
The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Primrose)
I have nothing to add to the reply which was returned to the hon. Member on 3rd March.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the hon. Gentleman say whether the principle of reciprocity in reference to prisoners of war is legalised at all; and, if it is, why it does not apply to these two men?
