asked the Prime Minister how many of the casualties suffered by the United Nations in the North African campaign are prisoners of war?

About 70,000 of the casualties suffered in North Africa by the Forces of the United Kingdom, the Dominions, the Colonies and India are now prisoners of war. I regret that I have no figures of the prisoners from the Forces of the other United Nations.
