HC Deb 20 June 1950 vol 476 c100W
99. Mr. Awbery

asked the Secretary of State for War if, in view of the fact that the railway in Sigm built for the Japanese during the war by British prisoners has been sold, he will set aside part of the price received by His Majesty's Government to be used for compensation to the men who built it for the hardships which they endured.

Mr. Strachey

I would refer to the statement made by my hon. Friend on 13th June.
