HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c174W
Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Secretary of State for War for what reason the commandant responsible for the prisoners of war living at Quedgeley Court Hostel, Gloucester, has made the town out of bounds although it is within a five-mile radius of their quarters and has also forbidden them to go into any church, unless in an organised group, on a Sunday morning.

Mr. Bellenger

Gloucester has been put out of bounds to all German prisoners of war in that area as the privilege of walking unescorted in the town has been abused. As a result of this order prisoners of war have only been allowed to attend church services in organised groups.
