HC Deb 05 December 1944 vol 406 cc349-50
48. Captain Gammans

asked the Prime Minister how many casualties have been suffered in the war against Japan by the British Empire and U.S.A. armed Forces, respectively.

The Prime Minister

The figures are not immediately available. Furthermore, several Governments are concerned and would have to be consulted; and it is for consideration whether this information could be given without helping the enemy. So far as I am aware the United States Government have not published any such figures, but the brunt of the war against Japan is of course being borne by them.
