asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further information his Department has, subsequent to that given at the Nuremberg trial, as to the fate of, or the survival of, Martin Bormann; and what steps he is taking to continue the search for him, with a view to apprehending him, so that he may undergo the sentence imposed on him at that trial.

At the Nuremberg trial evidence was offered to show that it was likely that Bormann was killed during an attempted escape from the Reich Chancellery on 1st May, 1945: no reliable information as to his fate has subsequently been received. As stated in the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, North-West (Mr. Janner) on 25th October, I have no reason to believe that Bormann is alive.
