HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 cc261-2W
Mr. G. Hutchinson

asked the Secretary of State for War what arrangements are made for interviewing persons who call to make inquiries at the offices of the War Graves Commission; and whether he will give an assurance that arrangements will be made for such inquiries to be dealt with at the offices of the Commission and not referred to other Departments.

Sir J. Grigg

All persons calling at the Directorate of Graves Registration and Enquiries in Grosvenor Gardens to inquire concerning graves of this war are interviewed by either a military or civilian officer, and given all information available, and any advice or help possible. The Imperial War Graves Commission who have a subsidiary office in the same building interview any inquirers concerning graves of the 1914–18 war in a similar manner. My hon. and learned Freud may rest assured that everything possible is done to ensure that all inquiries receive sympathetic treatment.
