HC Deb 11 February 1947 vol 433 c179
30. Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the deep concern held by such societies as the Birmingham Young Friends, Quakers, about the lack of facilities for leading anything approaching a normal life by German prisoners of war; and if he will make a general statement on the situation, and issue new regulations to extend the privileges of these prisoners.

36. Mr. Martin Lindsay

asked the Secretary of State for War, if he will extend the concessions to German prisoners of war in Britain as regards time of reporting back and distance for visits on Sundays.

Mr. Bellenger

On 10th and 20th December I announced, in reply to Questions by hon. Members, considerable relaxations of restrictions on prisoners of war. This was an experimental measure and I am watching the results of it. I will consider making certain modifications of the instructions now issued if such action appears to be warranted.
