§ 3. Mr. HUME-WILLIAMS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can state what, if any, arrangements are made in Germany for wounded prisoners discharged from hospital as convalescent; how many of such wounded prisoners have been sent to Switzerland, and what proportion such number bears to the total number of wounded prisoners in Germany; and are those who recover in Switzerland sent back to Germany or sent to this country in exchange for German prisoners?
§ Lord R. CECIL
Wounded prisoners in Germany are sent when convalescent to an internment camp. In theory, they are not expected to work until they have recovered their strength; 452 British prisoners have so far been sent to Switzerland. I regret that we have no information as to the total number of wounded British prisoners in Germany. British and German prisoners sent to Switzerland remain there until the end of the War.
