HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1232
30. Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for War whether Rudolf Hess is now kept in camp in Scotland or to what camp he has been moved; and what are his daily rations?

Captain Margesson

It would not be in the public interest to disclose the present whereabouts of this prisoner. His daily rations are the same as those of his guards.

Mr. Thorne

Is the man in question getting any pay, and is he living in some villa or some big house?

Captain Margesson

He is certainly not getting any pay.

Mr. Bellenger

The right hon. and gallant Gentleman refers to his having the same rations as his guards; has he an officer guard or a guard of N.C.O.s and other ranks?

Captain Margesson

Perhaps my hon. Friend will put that Question down, but I think it is a mixed guard.

Mr. Thorne

Why should there be a secret about this man? Should not the public know where he is and what he is doing? Is he not claiming to be a special envoy who ought to be sent home?

Sir W. Davison

We do not want him to be sent home; we want to keep him here.
