15. Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can make any statement as to the relations between the Agent-General for Reparations, the Transfer Committee, and the British Treasury in the carrying out of the German Reparation Recovery Act?
The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Guinness)
The Dawes Plan treats payments made by Germany through the German Reparation (Recovery) Act as a form of payment by deliveries in kind (see the last 2041 paragraph of Section XI of the Report: Command Paper 2105, page 34). The duties and powers of the Agent-General for Reparations and the Transfer Committee in relation to deliveries in kind are set out in Section XIII and in Annex 6 of the Report (Command Paper 2105, page 35 and page 111) and apply to the Recovery Act in the same way as to any other delivery in kind.
