asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that British soldiers captured at Leros, 17th Novem- ber, are complaining that they have not received any supplies of boots or clothing of any kind since that date and that many of them have nothing but the rags of tropical kit; and will he take prompt measures with the Red Cross or other authorities to see that these issues of necessary clothing are made forthwith.

Considerable quantities of clothing have been despatched from Geneva to all the camps in Germany which are known to have received prisoners from the Dodecanese but, if my hon. and gallant Friend will send me particulars of any men who are still without essential clothing. I will gladly have inquiries made.
