asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the case of further repatriation of our prisoners of war, he will ensure better facilities for newspaper representatives to do their work?

On the recent occasion when repatriated men arrived in this country, 94 Press representatives availed themselves of the facilities provided for them at the ports, while no less than 226 were afforded interviews with men in hospital and at depots. I do not think that Press representation on this scale can be regarded as inadequate.
