§ 10. Mr. STANTON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that many thousands of British soldiers imprisoned in Germany are kept alive only by means of parcels sent out to them by their friends in this country; if his Department will therefore let the German authorities know that unless they are prepared to treat our imprisoned soldiers more generously in regard to food we shall treat German prisoners in this country the same as they treat ours; and if his Department will adopt an eye-for-an-eye policy in this matter?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
In view of the different conditions with regard to foodstuffs which prevail in this country and in Germany, it is not considered desirable or in the interests of our prisoners in Germany to take the steps suggested by my hon. Friend.
