50 Members of British Parliament Petition Germany on Nazi Prosecution

More than 50 Labor Members of the British Parliament were disclosed today to have given support to a petition urging the West German Government to extend the deadline for prosecution of Nazi war criminals.

Emanuel Shinwell, Parliamentary Labor Party chairman, is sponsoring the petition. The West German statute of limitations for prosecution of such crimes will become effective next May 8 if it is not extended.
