4. Mr. S. BENN
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will ask the Ambassador for the United States of North America in Berlin if he will be good enough to obtain a weekly 132 diet sheet of British prisoners in Germany, both for officers and men, also a weekly pay sheet?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord Robert Cecil)
I would refer the hon. Member, in reply, to the answers given yesterday to the questions asked by the hon. Members for Plymouth and Faversham regarding the pay and rations given to British prisoners of war in Germany. Having regard to the very large number of permanent and working camps scattered throughout Germany, in which British prisoners of war are distributed, there would, I fear, be very considerable difficulty in carrying out the suggestion of the hon. Member. Inquiries, however, shall be made as to what can be done in this direction.
