Occupation Costs


asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what agreement has been reached with the West German Government on the subject of occupation costs after 1st July next, when the present arrangements expire.

If the hon. and gallant Member will repeat his Question in a few days' time I hope to be able to give him a definite answer.

Does that mean that between 1st July and a few days' time the position is left absolutely open, that no arangements have been made and that a vacuum has been created as a result of the Government's indecision?

I should be grateful if the hon. and gallant Member would wait for a few days.

Prisoners, Spandau (Underground Traffic)


asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has completed his investigations, arising from the evidence and documents submitted to him by the hon. Member for West Ham, North, of the underground traffic carried on by the prisoners of Spandau; and whether he will make a statement.

The investigations are still proceeding, but I hope to communicate with the hon. Member shortly.
