§ 28. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the joint committee of experts for the discussion and settlement of claims and debts against the Soviet Government by British nationals has been set up, as contemplated in the Protocol of 3rd October, 1929?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
No, Sir. The constitution of the contemplated committee and the scope of its work are still under consideration.
§ Captain MACDONALD
Does the right hon. Gentleman think that it is in the interest of the British taxpayer that we should be committed to a further liability of £2,000,000 while these claims remain outstanding?
