§ Miss Wilkinson
asked the Secretary of State for War what is the cost per head, including establishment charges, of maintaining officers and men, respectively, captured from German submarines?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
As regard officers, I would refer the hon. Lady to the answer I gave yesterday to the right hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood). As regards men, the rent of the camp is not settled, but, apart from this, the cost is about £75 a day, of which £65 is for staff. There are 94 prisoners at present, but the camp would accommodate 750. The figures cover Air Force as well as naval prisoners.
