HC Deb 11 December 1950 vol 482 c811
51. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can now give any news of the whereabouts of the Right Reverend A. C. Cooper. the Anglican Bishop in Korea, and two English priests C. Hunt and A. W. Lee and Sister Mary Clare of the Community of St. Peter who were all taken by the Communists of North Korea between the end of June and the midle of May, 1950; and what steps are being taken to secure their release.

Mr. Ernest Davies

I regret that I have still no definite news of the persons mentioned. His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires in Korea and the Unified Command have been making continued inquiries, but so far without success. His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires in Moscow has again approached the Soviet Government in the matter and His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires in Peking has also been instructed to make inquiries through the Central People's Government.
