HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c190W
74. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the complaints concerning the attention given to war graves in a number of cemeteries in this country; and what steps he is taking to remedy these matters.

Mr. Head

The Imperial War Graves Commission are responsible for the maintenance of over 170,000 war graves of both wars in the United Kingdom, and they do occasionally receive complaints, the cause of which they make every effort to rectify with a minimum of delay. From what I have seen, since I have been Chairman of this organisation, I think it is extremely efficient and well organised.
