HC Deb 21 August 1945 vol 413 cc440-1
44. Lieut.-Colonel Hare

asked the Secretary of State for War how much material and goods removed from Holland by the Germans are still being retained in the British zone by the military authorities; and if he is prepared to give an assurance that adequate measures will be taken to return these possessions to the Dutch people at the earliest opportunity.

Mr. Lawson

Some small measure of restitution has already been made and it is hoped that as a result of instructions issued recently an appreciable amount of easily identifiable goods, etc., will be restored to the Dutch and other Allies soon.
