§ 47. Mr. CLOUGH
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the official statement that in January. 1919, £1,583,000 was paid to the ex-Kaiser as King of Prussia; in August, 1919, £802,600; in October, 1919, £701,600; and since that date, £1,150,000; whether, in view of his statement that he intended to search the pockets of Germany, these large sums, which ought to be devoted to reparation in the devastated countries, have been overlooked in the process of searching: and whether, now that his attention has been called to the matter, some steps can be taken to secure for the victims of the ex-Kaiser's policy some assistance from his vast private funds?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I have no information as to what sums may have been remitted to the ex-Kaiser from Germany, but our Ambassador in Berlin is being asked to ascertain the facts.
§ Colonel CLAUDE LOWTHER
Can we have information what income was allowed to Napoleon at St. Helena, so that we may have some comparison to judge by?
§ Mr. MacVEAGH
Can the hon. Gentleman tell us when the trial of the ex-Kaiser is to take place in London, and when he is to be hanged?
§ 49. Mr. WATERSON
asked the Prime Minister whether the international law which prevents the Allies from securing from Holland the ex-Kaiser of Germany was in operation in August, 1914?
§ Sir G. HEWART
I have been asked to reply to this question. So far as I am aware, there has not been, since August, 1914, any change in the international law relating to matters of the kind.
