HC Deb 15 November 1945 vol 415 cc2295-6
4. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he is aware that there are 200 repatriated prisoners of war in a hospital camp at Christchurch, New Zealand; that they have received no news from home since September, 1944; and whether the letters and cables which relatives were instructed to send to Melbourne will now be forwarded.

Mr. Burke

Correspondence for liberated prisoners of war is sent on as received, and I am informed that a considerable volume of mail from home has been received by liberated prisoners of war now in New Zealand within three weeks of the date of posting. I am making special inquiries about the hospital camp at Christchurch referred to, and will write to the hon. and Gallant Member.
