asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has yet received any definite news from the Yugoslav Government as to the fate of the six Yugoslavs handed over by the British authorities in Germany on 2nd August, 1948.

Mr. McNeil:

Yes, Sir. I understand that three of these men have been sentenced to death and executed. I have no further information about the fate of the three others but hope that this may be available shortly, in which case I shall be glad to communicate it to my hon. Friend. I am pressing for the date of the three executions, to which I have referred.
