HC Deb 05 May 1920 vol 128 c2056
45. Sir W. BARTON

asked the Prime Minister what progress has been made in connection with the question of compensation to British subjects for War damages in France; whether this matter is still in the hands of the Reparation Commission in Paris; and can he indicate when British sufferers may expect to receive compensation?


On the general question of British Government claims against Germany in respect of damage or loss suffered by individuals, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer gave yesterday to the Member for the Ladywood Division of Birmingham (Mr. N. Chamberlain). As regards damages suffered by British subjects in the occupied districts of France, I would refer to the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Macclesfield (Mr. Remer) on the 18th February.
