HC Deb 19 July 1944 vol 402 c167
1. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the United Nations will regard as war criminals those scientists who have been decorated by Hitler for their skill in devising the flying bomb.

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

I understand that the German wireless recently announced that two German scientists had been decorated for outstanding services to Germany's aircraft armament. I have no statement to make on this subject.

Sir T. Moore

As this is a deliberately indiscriminate weapon, which was, no doubt, discarded by our own side for that reason, should not the inventors be placed in the same category as the users?
