§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Defence how many members of Her Majesty's Forces have been posted as missing in West Berlin this year; and from how many of these no communications have been received.
§ Mr. Watkinson
Four Service men have been posted absent, believed to be in East Germany or East Berlin, during this year. Of those, two have since been returned to British hands. So far as I am aware, no communication has been received from the other two men.
