HC Deb 31 March 1927 vol 204 cc1419-20
68. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total money payments received by this country in reparations from ex-enemy countries since the end of the late War; the estimated value in pounds sterling of the reparations received in kind by this country; and what have been the total payments received by this country towards the costs of the armies of occupation in pounds sterling?


This country has received from Germany, approximately, £57 millions on account of the costs of the British Army of Occupation, and £33 millions on account of reparations. Of the above, some £10 millions were taken in the form of deliveries in kind and a further £10 millions in the form of German currency and supplies furnished to the Army of Occupation. We have received in cash from Bulgaria £133,000 on account of the cost of the British occupation, and £98,000 on account of reparation. No reparation payments have been made to His Majesty's Government by Austria or Hungary.
