§ 3. Sir E. CORNWALL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign 382 Affairs how many of the British and Indian troops taken prisoners at Kut-el-Amara have now been traced, and give their whereabouts, their present condition and health, and their treatment?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The total number of those taken prisoners at Kut who have been accounted for is about 2,850 of all ranks. This figure includes natives, and also those who have been reported as exchanged or dead. Those traced are distributed over some sixteen places. Information is scanty, but those in camps are believed to be fairly well treated.
