§ Sir J. SPEAR
asked the Secretary of State for War if he has any recent information as to where the men taken prisoners at Kut are, and their condition?
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
The majority of the British non-commissioned officers and men, according to the most recent reports, are at Afion, Kara Hissar, Adana, and Kasta-mouni, the first-named being by far the largest camp. The Indian troops appear to be at Ras-el-Ain. The condition of the prisoners generally was dealt with in the statement I made on Tuesday last.
§ Sir F. BLAKE
asked the Treasurer of the Household whether retired British officers who were in Germany at the beginning of the War and are still prisoners there are included amongst those eligible for exchange if they are of the prescribed age and in other respects suitable?
