I am not clear as to what my hon. Friend means by his Question. If the suggestion is that Frau Hess is in England, this is not so. In any case no such request has been received from her. As the Prime Minister stated in the House on 20th May, 1941, Hess is being treated as a prisoner of war and will receive appropriate treatment. Even if such a request had been made, there would be no question of granting such facilities, for which there is no provision in the Prisoners of War Convention.
