HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 c1707
53. Commander WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is intended to remove the Reserve units of he Royal Naval Division from the camp built for that division at Blandford by the Admiralty and to convert it into a German prisoners' camp; whether he is aware of the inconvenience and loss both to administration and to the pensioner instructors who have made their homes at Blandford that such a change would cause; and whether he will consider the possibility of sending the German prisoners to work in France?


It is not intended to remove the Reserve units of the Royal Naval Division from Blandford, nor is it intended to convert the camp into a prisoners of war camp.
