The Prime Minister

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister gave to my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Ilford (Mr. Hutchinson) on 29th February last. casualties sustained by all ranks of the British Empire Forces during the first four years of war. It is accompanied by the figures of casualties sustained by the British Merchant Navy during the same period, and the comparable figures for civilian casualties in the United Kingdom, which have been considerable.
