§ Mr. Ernest Davies
No investigations of this nature are now being undertaken by His Majesty's Government except such as may be necessary for the consideration of requests from other Governments for the surrender of alleged war criminals.
§ Mr. Davies
No, Sir. In view of the lapse of time and the circumstances, His Majesty's Government really could not associate themselves with any future inquiries in this matter.
§ Mr. Astor
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the Government are on record as making a statement attaching responsibility for these murders to the Germans, which, in view of the subsequent evidence, is probably extremely inaccurate? Is not this an opportunity to put on record a more accurate statement?
