HC Deb 03 December 1946 vol 431 c54W
115. Mr. Vane

asked the Secretary of State for War whether German prisoners of war in this country have any choice of zone to which they are eventually to be repatriated; and what rules govern the destination of men whose prewar homes were outside Germany or in provinces which are likely to be ceded to neighbouring countries under the peace treaties.

Mr. Bellenger

Prisoners of war are repatriated to their zone of domicile, that is the present domicile of their next of kin; if they are not domiciled in one of the four zones they are repatriated to the zone of the Power by whom they are held.
