HC Deb 23 January 1929 vol 224 c152

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is in a position to make a further statement with regard to reparations and the withdrawal of troops from the Rhineland?


As regards reparations the hon. Member will have seen in the Press the various announcements which have been made recently relative to the constitution of an international Committee of Experts to submit proposals for the complete and final settlement of the reparation problem. It is expected that this Committee will meet shortly. It is clear that any further statement on this subject is impossible until the Committee has formulated its proposals and these have been studied by the various Governments concerned. With regard to the second part of the question on the subject of the Rhineland, there is at present nothing to add to the statement which I made during the Debate on the Adjournment on the 20th December last.
