HC Deb 27 September 1944 vol 403 c220
16. Captain Gammans

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is yet in a position to make a statement regarding the reparation terms for the loss of British assets and property in Rumania; and the approximate value of the losses which have been suffered.

Mr. Eden

The armistice with Rumania, the terms of which have been published, provides, in the case of Allied States other than the Soviet Union, that compensation will be paid by Rumania for losses caused during the war to the property of such Allied States and to their nationals in Rumania, the amount of the compensation to be fixed at a later date. It is impossible to estimate the approximate value of the losses to British property which have occurred in Rumania until an examination can be carried out on the spot.
