HC Deb 03 July 1916 vol 83 c1205
32. Major HUNT

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the fact that the Deutsche Bank in Berlin is preparing to finance a huge trade war upon us when peace comes, he can say why nine German clerks are still allowed to remain in the Deutsche Bank in London, where they will be able to help in the trade war, whilst British clerks in Germany are starving behind barbed wire?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to my reply to the hon. Member for the Brentford Division on 28th June, and my remarks in the Debate on the Home Office Vote on the 29th.

Major HUNT

Are not these clerks allowed to store up money for the use of Germans after the War?


The disposal of the money after the War is a matter that does not arise at present; and if it did arise it would be in the province of the Board of Trade and not of the Home Office.
