HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc905-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it will now be possible to remove German prisoners from the occupation of private houses where, in some cases, they are doing considerable damage and increasing the congestion in housing accommodation?


I think my hon. Friend is referring to the occupation of private houses by small bodies of prisoners of war who are employed on agricultural work. It is anticipated that repatriation will have so far progressed that these parties of prisoners will all be withdrawn to main camps by the end of next week.
