HC Deb 26 July 1965 vol 717 c8W
44. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will instruct Her Majesty's Government's representative at the United Nations Organisation to make a statement condemning the use of torture and the public shooting of prisoners during the course of hostilities.

Mr. George Thomson

Her Majesty's Government deplore all illegal and inhumane acts inflicted upon prisoners. Our attitude to such atrocities is well known and I am grateful for this opportunity of restating it. I will certainly bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind about a further statement at the United Nations.
