HC Deb 26 November 1942 vol 385 cc889-90W
Captain Poole

asked the Prime Minister whether he has yet any statement to make on the chaining of prisoners of war?

Mr. Attlee

We are in communication with the Protecting Power on this subject but I am not yet in a position to make a statement.

Sir A. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a letter from Camp VII B in Germany states that 200 prisoners of war in that camp are manacled for 12 hours a day and at night sleep in a cold attic on the floor; and whether he will make representations through the Protecting Power?

Mr. A. Henderson

I am aware of the reports to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers. I have nothing to add to the answer given to-day by the Deputy Prime Minister to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Lichfield (Captain Poole).
