§ 18. Sir Oliver Simmonds
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether there is now agreement between the Allies on the essential arrangements for the trial of the principal war criminals.
§ Sir O. Simmonds
Have we definitely accepted the American proposition that this should be a military tribunal, and can my right hon. Friend say what is to be the location of the court?
§ Mr. Eden
I am afraid that my hon. Friend has over-simplified a very com- 198 plicated matter. If he will read the answer which my right hon. Friend gave yesterday, he will find that there is more than one category to be dealt with. All I can say at the moment is that we have had most useful conversations with Judge Jackson in the last few days which have resulted in great progress being made.
§ Mr. McGovern
In view of the question that has been discussed in the Press today about the trial of "Lord Haw-Haw," can the right hon. Gentleman tell us what is being done with Mr. John Amery, and why there is such a black-out with regard to him?
