HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 c1772

asked the Prime Minister the amounts paid in each of the years since the War for claims by French peasants and others for alleged damage to their property done by our troops during the War?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Lieut.-Colonel Guinness)

I have been asked to reply. The information is not immediately available, but if the hon. Member will he good enough to inform me further of what he has in mind, and particularly whether he means accidental and avoidable damage only, or damage due to occupation also, I will make inquiries and communicate with him in due course
