§ 5. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that out of the 17,000 Bulgarian officers and men taken prisoners to the west of Scopie by the French in the late War, and handed over to the Serbians, only 12,770 have been repatriated to Bulgaria; whether the Serbians report that there are no more Bulgarian prisoners of war on their territory; and whether it is possible to ascertain what has become of the 4,230 officers and men that make up the total number of Bulgarian prisoners that were handed over by the French?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
I understand that a certain number of Bulgarian prisoners are still detained in Serbia on the ground that these men are not ordinary prisoners of war, but individuals detained under 1583 the Treaty provisions affecting War criminals. The number and condition of of these criminals is being investigated by Dr. Nansen's Commission under the League of Nations.
