§ 45. Mr. L. LYLE
asked the Prime Minister when the Committee dealing with individual responsibility for breaches of civilised warfare expects to report; and whether there is any reason why immediate action should not be taken against those in high positions who are responsible for the War and for the atrocities committed without waiting for the legal decision of the Committee which has been considering the question for so many weeks past?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)
The Committee dealing with individual responsibility for breaches of civilised warfare expects to make its Report to the Peace Conference almost immediately. It has already met to consider its final Report. Until this Report has been received and considered, it would not be possible to take action as suggested.
