§ 2. Sir R. CLOUGH
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the German Government is considering a payment of £5,000,000 sterling in gold to the ex-Kaiser for the purchase of his property in Prussia; and whether, if this is the case, suggestions might be made by the Allies to the effect that this sum had better be devoted to reparation work in the French and Belgian devastated territory?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
I am informed that the German Government have never considered any such payment. The second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
