§ 91. Viscountess Davidson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he now has any further statement to make regarding the whereabouts of the Bishop of Korea, and the treatment accorded to him by the North Koreans.
§ 92. Mr. Gammans
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is yet 28W in a position to make a statement concerning the whereabouts of Captain Vyvyan Holt.
§ 97. Wing Commander Hulbert
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he now has any information as to the whereabouts of Captain Holt, former Minister in North Korea; and what steps his Department is taking to trace him.
§ Mr. Younger
I am sorry to say that all efforts to obtain news about Captain Holt, Bishop Cooper and other British subjects who remained in Korea have been fruitless.
Mr. Gromyko informed His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires at Moscow on 22nd December that the latter's request for information had been brought to the notice of the authorities of the Korean Peoples Democratic Republic. This has brought no response. The International Red Cross Committee have not been able to pursue the matter through this channel as no representative has been permitted to go to the territory occupied by that authority. Inquiries which have been addressed by His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires at Peking to the Central Peoples Government, the last being on 19th January, have so far yielded no information.
