HC Deb 16 November 1931 vol 259 c480
10. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is taking cognisance of the conversations between the French and German Governments as to the payment of reparations by Germany; and will he see that the prospects of the repayment next February of our frozen credits in Germany are not damnified by any arrangements come to by the Governments of France and Germany?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, His Majesty's 'Government are fully alive to the importance of the question raised by the right hon. and gallant Gentleman.


Can the hon. Gentleman say whether the Foreign Secretary, now in Paris, is raising this matter with the French Government?


I think I must ask the right hon. and gallant Gentleman to rest content with the very full statement made by my right hon. Friend the Lord President of the Council on Friday. I cannot add anything to it.
