asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury when the numbers of the staff at the clearing house for enemy debts at Cornwall House, Stamford Street, were last considered; and can he state the numbers of the staff on 1st July, 1925 and 1st January and 1st July, 1926?


I have been asked to reply. The staff of the Clearing Office (Enemy Debts), which includes the Departments for the administration of German, Austrian, Bulgarian and Hungarian property, is under constant review by the Board of Trade in consultation with the Treasury. This staff numbered 1,096 on the 1st July, 1925; 945 on the 1st January, 1926; 889 on the 1st July, 1926.
