HC Deb 28 January 1941 vol 368 c444W
Mr. Savory

asked the Secretary of State for War what steps are being taken to facilitate the repatriation of medical officers serving in His Majesty's Forces, and now captives in Germany?

Captain Margesson

The German Government have been informed that His Majesty's Government are ready to repatriate the German medical personnel who are entitled to repatriation under the Geneva Convention of 1929, if the German Government will also conform to the terms of the Convention as regards British medical personnel in their hands. The matter is being actively pursued, but a satisfactory settlement has not yet been reached.
