§ Sir A. MARKHAM
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that there are already in Switzerland over 1,000 French prisoners of war in ill-health drawn from Germany, and a similar number of German prisoners of war drawn from France, who have been removed to Switzerland under a reciprocal arrangement between France and Germany; is he aware that there is no single British prisoner of war in Switzerland under any such arrangement; and can he state why it has not been possible to make between. Great Britain and Germany such a reciprocal arrangement for the alleviation of the lot of prisoners of war on both sides as has been made and carried into effect between France and Germany?
§ Mr. TENNANT
The answer to the first and second parts of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the latter part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which was given on Tuesday last by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for Croydon.
§ Mr. MALCOLM
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he can give an undertaking to the House that civilian prisoners of war returned from Germany who are of military age will only be used for purposes of Home service?
