HC Deb 30 May 1916 vol 82 c2543

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will request the United States Ambassador in this country to furnish, if possible, through the good offices of the United States Ambassador at Berlin, a weekly statement of the diet supplied to our civilian prisoners interned in Germany at the Ruhleben Camp and elsewhere?


Dr. Taylor, of the United States Embassy at Berlin, has recently drawn up an elaborate report on the feeding of the British civilians interned at Ruhleben. This report will be laid before Parliament in a few days. There are a small number of civilians at Hameln, Schloss Celle and Havelberg as to whose weekly diet inquiries have been made.
