HC Deb 09 November 1916 vol 87 cc459-60W

asked the Treasurer of the Household whether his Department has officially received or has read Madame Bramson's recent Report upon the treatment and health of British prisoners of war at Gustrow, Munster, and other camps in Germany; and whether the last Reports from the American Ambassador in Berlin go to confirm or to refute this Danish lady's impressions?


We have seen a brief reference in the Press to this report, -which seems to deal mainly with the conditions formerly obtaining at Gustrow. A report on this camp has just been received from the United States Ambassador showing that the conditions at this camp are now satisfactory.


asked how many British prisoners of war are reported to have been sentenced to imprisonment of three years and upwards, with and without solitary confinement, penal servitude, and hard labour; and how many German prisoners in Great Britain have received similar sentences since the outbreak of war?


As to the first part of the question, it has been impossible to obtain full and accurate information in the time available. The answer to the latter part of the question is: Five.
