§ 52. Sir J. BUTCHER
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that many British subjects have large sums owing to them by German debtors and have or had on the outbreak of War property and assets of large amount in Germany which have been seized or confiscated or otherwise disposed of; whether, in order to liquidate the claims of these British subjects, he will endeavour to secure as part of our peace terms with Germany that these claims shall be set off against and paid out of the moneys, property, and assets of German subjects in this country; and what other arrangements have been or will be made for securing payment of these claims by British subjects?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
This subject is being considered in connection with the Peace Conference, and I cannot at present make any statement in regard to it.
