§ 65. Mr. G. Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the continued reports of atrocities in the Korean war, alleged against both sides, he will seek for a report from the International Red Cross Organisation.
§ Mr. Ernest Davies
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement I made in the House on 1st November and the reply given to a Question on 6th November. I can assure hon. Members that this matter will continue to receive the closest attention of His Majesty's Government. I doubt whether this is a matter which could be appropriately handled by the International Red Cross, as it appears to fall outside the scope of its activities.
