§ Mr. Lawson
The costs of maintenance and other expenses relating to prisoners of war are brought to account under many different votes and, as stated by my hon. Friend on 25th June, in 261W reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Monmouth (Mr. P. Thorneycroft), a separate estimate could not be prepared without a disproportionate amount of work by hard pressed staffs. I feel that the work would not be justified in present circumstances.
