HC Deb 07 December 1943 vol 395 c789W
Mr. Keeling

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now name the British experts sent to Italy for the protection of historic buildings and works of art?

Sir J. Grigg

The British officers appointed, or to be appointed, for this work will in the main be members of the Allied Control Commission, and I am not sure that it is desirable in the case of that Commission any more than in that of Military Headquarters or Government Departments to publish the names of all those engaged within the organisation's framework on any particular duties. In any case I should wish to await the report of the War Office adviser who is at present visiting North Africa and Italy before making any statement.
