HC Deb 04 April 1917 vol 92 c1285
33. Major HUNT

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the German prisoners of war at Hard Hill Camp do hardly any work and spend most of their time in idling and smoking; and whether, as our soldiers have to work bard for the Germans, he can take any steps to see that a similar amount of work 18 done by Germans in this country?

Mr. JAMES HOPE (Lord of the Treasury)

I am informed by the military authorities that a report on the conditions prevailing at Hard Hill Camp has been asked for. Pending its receipt, I am unable to furnish a reply.
