HC Deb 22 April 1947 vol 436 cc95-6W
98. Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the body of General Wingate, which has now been found in Burma, will be brought to this country for interment with military honours.

Mr. Bellenger

The policy of His Majesty's Government is that the bodies of those who fell overseas should be concentrated within military cemeteries in the countries and zones in which they fell. It is not proposed to make an exception to the general policy in this case.
