HC Deb 11 February 1930 vol 235 c216
49. Major GLYN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total sum paid to France under the terms of the peace treaty as compensation for war damage done to the coal industry of that country situated in the devastated areas?


Germany's reparation payments under the Peace Treaty have been distributed between the ex-Allied Powers by agreement among them. The shares of individual Powers were allocated each as a whole, and were not divided into portions applicable to specific categories of damage. It is therefore not possible to give an answer to the hon. and gallant Gentleman's question.
