§ 45. Captain D. HALL
asked the Prime Minister whether any application has been received from the Kaiser or the German Government through any neutral Power that the body of Prince Frederick Carl of Prussia, who died from his wounds while a prisoner in the hands of the British, should be handed over for internment in Germany; and whether, if such application has been made, or is made, the British Government will insist, as a condition for granting the same, that the body of Nurse Cavell and Captain Fryatt be handed over for fitting burial in this country?
§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
No official application has been received, but a verbal and private inquiry was recently made by the Sovereign of a neutral country, through the diplomatic representatives in this country, as to whether the body of the late Prince Friedrich Carl of Prussia could be sent to Germany. The reply given was to the effect that it was impossible at present, but that, so far as we are concerned, there would be no objection to this being done on the conclusion of hostilities.
