HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 c1356
1. Sir Henry Morris-Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any further statement to make about our prisoners of war in Japanese hands.

The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Eden)

No, Sir. I have no further statement to make at present.

Sir H. Morris-Jones

Are the supplies mentioned on 5th July through the good offices of the Soviet Government reaching prisoners of war, and has the right hon. Gentleman any hope of the present Japanese Government becoming more civilised and amenable to international law?

Mr. Eden

The hon. Gentleman may be sure that we shall do what we can in that respect but I should hesitate to answer for any Japanese Government.
