HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 cc49-50W
Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will ascertain from the United Nations organization how many requests have been received from prisoners of war in United Nations hands in Korea that they he not repatriated.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

It is known that among the prisoners of war held by the United Nations in Korea there are men who have made clear their opposition to Communism and who might, therefore, be subject to reprisals if they were forcibly repatriated. Information about the numbers involved is not available.
