§ 2. Mr. HUME-WILLIAMS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state what is the present state of the negotiations with Germany with reference to the mutual repatriation of prisoners interned in Switzerland; whether there is any hope that badly wounded prisoners would be exchanged; and, if so, when they may be expected to arrive home?
The German Government have not yet definitely accepted our proposal for the repatriation from Switzerland of prisoners of war when disabili- 242 ties have developed since their transfer to Switzerland.
76. Mr. EDMUND HARVEY
asked the hon. Member for Sheffield (Central Division), whether he can state the present position of British prisoners of war in Germany and elsewhere as regards the supply of parcels; and whether any modifications have recently been made in the arrangements for their dispatch?
This question has been further considered by the military authorities, but they have not been able to see their way to make any relaxation as to the weight and contents of parcels allowed to be sent to British prisoners of war.
