HC Deb 21 March 1927 vol 204 cc39-40
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?


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 sterling under the Reparation Recovery procedure and the equivalent of £900,000 in marks and services in Germany.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say how that compares with the amount paid to the United States of America during the same period.


I could not say. I must have notice of that question.

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?
