HC Deb 04 August 1943 vol 391 c2273
14. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of a recent German broadcast announcement, negotiations for the exchange of badly wounded prisoners from that country are in progress; and whether the possibility of interning long-term prisoners in neutral countries, as in the last war, is being considered?

Mr. Eden

I am glad to say that negotiations on this subject have, after a long interruption, been resumed. As regards the second part of the Question, if my hon. and gallant Friend refers to prisoners who have been in captivity for a long time, a suggestion of this kind has been received from the International Red Cross Committee, and is under consideration.
