HC Deb 05 June 1945 vol 411 cc717-8W
Colonel Greenwell

asked the Secretary of State for War how many British soldiers have been killed in Germany since the German surrender in clearing enemy minefields; and whether German troops are being employed on this work.

Sir J. Grigg

One British officer and 33 other ranks have been killed since VE-day in North-West Europe, but the information I have does not show how many of them, if any, were killed in clearing minefields. Disarmed German troops are being used on this work.
