HC Deb 29 June 1921 vol 143 c2161
51. Mr. LYLE

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the case that any Germans against whom the Allies have preferred charge of inhumanity and offences against the usages of war will be liable at any time in future, on visiting any Allied countries, to be arrested and put on trial; and whether, if that is the case, due supervision is taken of their movements should they apply for passports?


Pending the conclusion of the present trials at Leipzig, no Allied decision has been taken regarding future measures to be adopted against German War criminals.


What will happen if any one of these German criminals comes over here? Would he be arrested and placed under lock and key?


That question had better be put on the Paper.
