HC Deb 22 January 1929 vol 224 cc17-8
30. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has any information to give this House as to the negotiations about reparations?


The appointment of the Committee of Experts entrusted with the task of drawing up proposals for a complete and final settlement of the reparation problem has now been completed. The committee will consist of American, Belgian, British, French, German, Italian and Japanese members, there being two members of each nationality with power to appoint deputies. The first meeting of the committee will probably be held in the first weeks of February. The British members will be Sir Josiah Stamp and Lord Revelstoke, and the British deputy members Sir Charles Addis and Sir Basil Blackett.


Will the right hon. Gentleman let the House know the terms of reference of this Committee; or if there have not been any definite terms of reference, then the instructions given to the British delegates?


I think I must have notice of that question.


Is the problem of reparations still mixed up with the problem of the evacuation of the Rhine-land?


I must have notice of that question.
