HC Deb 17 October 1916 vol 86 cc430-1W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in conjunction with our Allies, he will publicly announce that, without prejudice to the situation with regard to past enemy atrocities, all inhuman violations of the laws of war that may be committed on and after a future date will be inquired into judicially with a view to fixing personal culpability and inflicting appropriate punishment on those primarily responsible in whatever rank or station?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the Prime Minister to the right hon. Member for Dublin University on 16th August, to which there is nothing at present to be added.
