HC Deb 28 November 1938 vol 342 c14
7. Lieut.-Commander Fletcher

asked the Prime Minister whether he has called for a report on the damage done to the property of British Jews during the recent riots in Germany; what the amount of the damage is; and what reply has been received from the German Government to the British Note on the subject?

Mr. Butler

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part, it is not possible to state the amount of the damage, pending the receipt of further information on the subject from His Majesty's Chargé d'Affaires at Berlin. With regard to the third part, no reply has yet been received to the British Note. As the Prime Minister informed the hon. Member for Derby (Mr. Noel-Baker) on 14th November, this Note reserved the right of His Majesty's Government to present claims for damage and drew attention to the rights of British residents in Germany. It did not raise any points calling for a special reply from the German Government.
