§ 7. Mr. BARNES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any official information to the effect that British naval prisoners at Forstadmoen, Faaberg, Norway, are subject to harsh treatment, inferior food, and deprivation of liberty; and, if so, will he have inquiry made with a view to securing their better treatment?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
The Admiralty have received an official report, dated 14th July, which 1657 deals with the treatment of the British naval prisoners interned at Forstadmoen. The men appear to be well treated and fed and to enjoy a reasonable amount of liberty. Certain privileges, including leave, were temporarily stopped owing to the escape of two of the prisoners.
