HC Deb 06 July 1927 vol 208 c1243

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the fortifications in East Prussia have been demolished to the satisfaction of the Military Control Commission?


As the hon. Member will be aware from the reply given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Dulwich (Sir F. Hall) on 30th June, an invitation was recently conveyed by the competent German authority for one or two of the Allied military experts who remained in Berlin attached to their respective Embassies after the withdrawal of the Military Commission of Control last January, to accompany him on a tour of inspection of those fortifications on Germany's eastern frontier, the demolition of which was agreed upon between the German Government and the Allied Governments concerned early in the year. This visit has not yet been completed, and I am accordingly not in a position to make any announcement regarding the demolition of the works in question.
