HC Deb 29 June 1944 vol 401 cc809-10W
Mr. R. Duckworth

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will ensure that German wounded falling into our hands are treated on the spot instead of being brought to this country where our own hospital accommodation will be needed.

Sir J. Grigg

Under the Geneva Convention sick and wounded prisoners of war must be "cared for medically, without distinction of nationality, by the belli- gerent in whose power they may be." When it is not possible to give hospital treatment to wounded prisoners on the Continent they must be brought to this country.
