HC Deb 20 February 1919 vol 112 c1135
86. Viscount WOLMER

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has been furnished with a list of Turkish officers and others who have been responsible for the brutal treatment of British prisoners of war in Turkish hands; whether he can say how many names there are upon this list; and what steps, if any, have been taken to secure the arrest of the individuals concerned with a view to their being brought to trial?


I cannot add anything to the replies which I have given on this subject, and to what the Prime Minister said on the 12th of February, but what has been said on this subject applies to Turkey as well as to Germany.

Lieutenant-Colonel Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK

Do the Government intend to exact from Turkey compensation for the injuries done to prisoners, and also compensation to the relatives of prisoners who have died?


That really is part of the general question. We shall exact whatever we can get from Turkey, as well as from our other enemies.
