HL Deb 30 March 1992 vol 544 c43WA
Lord Kilbracken

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the reply by Earl Ferrers on 15th March (HL, WA. 68) since the person now aged "under 65 years" would necessarily have been under 16 in the spring of 1944, what war crime he is alleged to have committed at the age of 15.

The Minister of State, Home Office (Earl Ferrers)

Part of the police investigation of this allegation is to verify the date of birth of the individual concerned. It would be improper for me to comment on the investigation whilst it is continuing, as this might prejudice the outcome.
