asked the Prime Minister when the murderers of British prisoners of war at Stalag Luft III will be brought to trial.

I have been asked to reply. The murders at Stalag Luft III are included in the indictment against the major war criminals being tried at Nuremburg later this month. The exact date of the trial of the many other persons involved in the murders has not been fixed. Some of those implicated are not yet in custody; others have been found to be dead. Investigations are being vigorously pursued, both by British and Allied personnel.

Will the right hon. Gentleman be sure that this does not develop into another Belsen trial?
