§ 8. Mr. NEWBOLD
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can give particulars as to the amount of German capital lodged in this country with banks and other financial houses under British jurisdiction; and whether he will take steps to ensure either its use to pay in part reparations or else or secure its extradition to the country of origin?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The policy of His Majesty's Government on the subject of reparations has already been made known.
§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a great deal of incorrect argument is based on this assumption, and will he give the information in order to prevent misunderstanding among the public?
§ Mr. SAMUEL
Would not even a rough estimate be very much better than to have a lot of incorrect information in circulation?
