HC Deb 30 March 1949 vol 463 cc119-20W
Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will provide a list of the names and personal numbers of those officers and other ranks who have been killed in action or died from wounds in Palestine and Malaya from the beginning of 1947 up to 28th February, 1949.

Mr. Shinwell

The figures which I gave in reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member on 22nd March were obtained from special statistical returns rendered by the theatres concerned. No list of the names of the officers and men is available centrally and such a list cannot be compiled without some difficulty and delay. I have, however, called for the information to be collected, if possible. When this has been done I will send it to the hon. and gallant Member.
