§ 52. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Prime Minister whether the claim for the cost of pensions and allowances forms part of the British Government's demand for reparations from the German Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The British claim for reparations is not now the sum of separate items but a percentage of the total reparation payments to be made by Germany, calculated, we hope, on a survey of her capacity to pay, and there the matter must remain till the negotiations which will follow the report of the Reparation Committee which we now await.
