§ Major Wise
asked the Secretary of State for War if the personal belongings of prisoners of war who died in Japanese captivity and which were handed over to the Japanese for safe custody had been recovered; and will they be sent to the next of kin of such prisoners.
§ Mr. Lawson
Certain consignments of personal effects of prisoners of war who died in Japanese captivity have been received from the Far East. These have already been forwarded to the persons legally entitled to the estates of the deceased persons or will be forwarded as soon as identification is complete.
