§ 2. Mr. MOUNT
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether permission has yet been given by Germany for any representatives from the United States to visit and report upon the camps in Poland and East Prussia where British prisoners of war have been sent on working parties; and, if not, whether steps can be taken to urge upon the Government of the United States the extreme desirability of obtaining such permission as soon as possible?
§ Mr. HOPE (Lord of the Treasury)
I am not quite sure to what working camps. 1280 in East Prussia my hon. Friend refers, but Mr. Jackson, of the United States Embassy at Berlin, visited the British prisoners of war at Libau on 16th October last and reported in generally favourable terms on their treatment. We were informed by the United States Embassy at Berlin early in October that steps had been taken to bring back the small number of British prisoners of war who were working in Poland.
§ 100. Mr. G. LAMBERT
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the possibility of shortening the time of four months or more that is now required for the delivery of parcels from here to prisoners of war at Yozgad, Turkey in Asia?
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is very considerable destitution among the prisoners at this camp through the failure to receive percels sent from here?
