HC Deb 13 November 1945 vol 415 c2062W
Mr. Manning

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is now in a position to make a statement with regard to the repatriation of Italian prisoners of war and ex-prisoners.

Mr. Lawson

As I have stated previously, this is dependent on shipping. We are planning to repatriate 1, 500 in November and 5, 000 in December. I am not yet able to forecast the numbers which can be moved each month during 1946.
