HC Deb 22 January 1947 vol 432 cc55-6W
Mr. Sharp

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many men are now looking after the seven Nazi leaders sentenced to imprisonment at Nuremberg; how many of these are British; and what is the estimated monthly cost of the supervision required.

Mr. J. Hynd

The seven Nazi leaders are still in custody in the American zone of Occupation but will be transferred to the Spandau prison in Berlin where they will serve their sentence under quadripartite supervision as soon as arrangements are complete. At Spandau there will be a permanent staff of 55, and in addition, one part-time medical officer, and 54 military guards. Nine of the permanent staff will be British, and the part time medical officer and the military guards will be provided from British resources every fourth month. The monthly cost of supervision cannot at present be estimated.
