HC Deb 28 February 1918 vol 103 c1568W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the rations of German prisoners have been altered since his last statement, in view of the small rations now available for the civilian population; and will he state the total number of prisoners, both civil and military, for whom he has to find rations?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers which I gave last Tuesday on this subject to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Enfield and my hon. Friend the Member for Clapham. The number of prisoners of war, combatant and interned civilians who are rationed from Army stocks in the United Kingdom, are:

Combatants 50,430
Interned civilians 6,282
Total 56,712
