46. Colonel SANDERS

asked the Prime Minister if he can state in round numbers how many British non-combatants (including men, women, and children, and merchant seamen) have been done to death by German U-boats and aircraft; and how many German non-combatants have, according to German reports, been done to death in a similar manner by the British?


The answer to the first part of the question is, in round figures, 14,120 men, women, and children. As regards the second part of the question, no official reports are published by Germany regarding casualties to noncombatants as a result of enemy action.
