HC Deb 20 February 1945 vol 408 cc613-4
14. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Cook

asked the Secretary of State for War if the Imperial War Graves Commission has taken over the maintenance of British graves in all theatres of war, except in enemy-occupied territory.

Sir J. Grigg

The Commission have continued to maintain the British graves of the late war so far as military conditions allowed, and they are making satisfactory progress in resuming the care of those in liberated territories. They are taking over the graves of the present war as and when the cemeteries are completed and handed over by the Army.
