§ 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.
