HC Deb 29 April 1971 vol 816 cc201-2W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will have an investigation made because British Service men with the Army of the Rhine at Birgeler, West Germany were compelled to scrub and clean the streets, in accordance with the details as submitted to him by the hon. Member for West Ham, North.

Mr. G. Johnson Smith

No. The Service men involved were cleaning the married quarter area in which they live and for which they are responsible. They were not ordered to clean the streets, which are the responsibility of the German authorities.
