HC Deb 12 April 1922 vol 153 c396

asked the Prime Minister whether the Peace Treaty makes any provision for compensation or reparation of Allied nationals who made contracts with Germans before the War in cases where, those contracts being dissolved by Article 299 of the Treaty, the German contracting party is now free to compete with the Allied national even to the extent of using the firm name or any other advantages which result from the contract?


I have been asked to reply. I am not certain that I understand exactly the circumstances to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, but where a contract between an Allied national or German national is dissolved in accordance with Article 299 of the Treaty, the German would appear to have lost any right which he might have had under the contract to use the name of the Allied national.
