Mr FORDE - I have no evidence that any privates escaped from Singapore, but I have called for a report upon certain statements which appeared in a newspaper. Whilst that report has not yet come to hand, I shall probably receive it to-day and I shall then make it available to the honorable gentleman. Personally, I do not believe that any privates have escaped from Malaya; nor do I believe that any generals escaped from Singapore before the surrender. We have definite evidence that that escape occurred after the surrender.
