§ 16. Sir J. LONSDALE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the German Government have given effect to the agreement that all British women and children, men over fifty-five, ministers of religion, and doctors should be allowed to return home; and, if not, how many of these classes are still detained in Germany?
§ Sir E. GREY
Effect has been given to this agreement except in a few isolated cases which are receiving attention, but some of which are not free from doubt. 2308 There are, however, the cases of certain retired British officers over fifty-five who are detained without the slightest justification, and whose release has formed the subject of repeated representations. Negotiations for the release of military doctors are still proceeding.
