HC Deb 23 June 1948 vol 452 c147W
97. Mr. Warbey

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what reports he has received from the British Military Mission in Greece regarding the shooting incident on the Island of Makronisi on 29th February last when a number of military detainees were fired on and killed or wounded for alleged mutiny.

Mr. McNeil

The British Military Mission to Greece has furnished no report on this subject, but the reports from His Majesty's Ambassador were summarised in the reply given to the hon. and learned Member for North Hammersmith (Mr. Pritt) on 31st May. I am glad to have this opportunity of correcting that reply, in the light of later information. The second incident took place on 1st March, and not on 14th March; and the total casualties were 16 mutineers killed, 62 mutineers wounded and 30 guards wounded.
