HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1310
135. Mr. BUTCHER

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will state precisely what remains to be done in the winding-up of the Deutsche, Dresdner, and Disconto-Gesellschaft Banks, respectively, and in particular what is the amount of the outstanding liabilities of each bank to creditors other than enemy alien creditors; and whether there is any reason for carrying on the business of these banks after such outstanding liabilities have been paid or provided for?


If the hon. Gentleman will allow me, I will circulate with the OFFICIAL REPORT a statement many pages long setting out the whole circumstances in this matter.


After the outstanding liabilities to creditors other than enemy aliens have been discharged, will the business come to an end?


I think the hon. Gentleman will see that all the circumstances are dealt with in the statement which I will circulate.
