HC Deb 28 July 1943 vol 391 cc1550-1
7. Sir Leonard Lyle

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the announcement that the Soviet Government has already named one German general as being responsible for mass murder, similar names can be transmitted direct to the United Nations Commission by Allied Governments now in this country or whether they will, under the circumstances, be sent through the British Foreign Office.

Mr. Eden

It will be open to all the Allied Governments, including those established in this country, to submit direct to the proposed United Nations Commission for the investigation of war crimes any evidence in their possession regarding war crimes committed by enemy nationals against nationals of the United Nations.

Sir L. Lyle

Have we here now any German agents or others who are guilty of mass murders or who, it is suggested, are guilty of mass murders?

Mr. Eden

I should like to have notice of that.
