HC Deb 15 October 1945 vol 414 c661
1. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what proof His Majesty's Government have that Hitler is dead; and if he will make a full statement.

The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. McNeil)

His Majesty's Government have no evidence proving conclusively either that Hitler is dead or that he is alive. Further investigations are however being made. My right hon. Friend does not consider a full statement would serve any useful purpose.

Sir W. Smithers

Will the hon. Gentleman through the Foreign Office, inform the House when there is any definite information?

Mr. McNeil
