§ 14. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for War how many British soldiers have been killed or wounded in Korea since the cease-fire negotiations were initiated; and what are the casualty figures for Scottish units.
§ Mr. Head
From the beginning of these negotiations up to 13th November, eight British officers and 96 other ranks were killed or died of wounds; 27 officers and 393 other ranks were wounded. The casualty figures for Scottish units included in these totals are: killed or died of wounds 24 other ranks; wounded, five officers and 140 other ranks.
§ Mr. Hughes
Is the Minister aware that there is a great deal of disquiet because people are getting killed when cease-fire negotiations are going on? Is it not possible to keep military action to a minimum while these talks go on?
