§ 79. Sir F. WISE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount Great Britain has received from reparation payments for the third annuity year; and what is the percentage of the deliveries in kind, what is it in marks, and what is it in currency?
§ Mr. McNEILL
For the period from 1st September, 1926, down to 28th February, 1927, the United Kingdom receipts from the Dawes annuities have been £4,850,000, of which £3,950,000 have been paid in 40 sterling under the Reparation Recovery procedure and the equivalent of £900,000 in marks and services in Germany.
§ Sir H. CAUTLEY
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how that compares with the amount paid to the United States of America during the same period.
§ Lieut.-Colonel HOWARD-BURY
Can my right hon. Friend say whether it is a fact, as stated by Mr. Mellon, that we are receiving more than we are paying to the United States?
