HC Deb 11 March 1947 vol 434 c159W
95 Mr. Keenan

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has considered the recent revelations of maltreatment of soldiers detained in the former prisoner-of-war camp at Tahag, Egypt, as proved at the recent court martial and what steps he is taking to deal with the persons responsible and so prevent a repetition of such maltreatment.

Mr. Bellenger

I have ordered a court of inquiry to examine the allegations, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend when I have received and examined the findings of the court.
