§ Sir R. Gower
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make any statement on the recent massacre of Norwegian hostages at Stavanger; and whether he will consider broadcasting a request to all Norwegians to record the names of German officers who authorise and execute these murders so that after the war they can be dealt with by the Allies?
§ Mr. Law
I understand that 11 Norwegians were executed at Stavanger on 29th December, having been condemned by a German military court for alleged espionage, sabotage or concealment of242W firearms. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the Allied Governments' declaration of 13th January. In view of this declaration it does not appear necessary for me to arrange such a broadcast.
