§ Lieut.-Colonel CROFT
asked the Prime Minister whether he has now any information as to the release of 250 British prisoners at Baku?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
My latest information is contained in a telegram received on 8th November from the Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean, to the effect that all naval and military and the majority of the civilian prisoners from Baku have now arrived at Tiflis, 61 persons in all. There are a few more civilian prisoners to come later. All the British are in good health. As far as I am aware, the total number of prisoners is 72, not 250, as suggested in the question.
