HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 cc1148-9
28. Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any scheme exists between Great Britain on the one hand, and France, Holland and Belgium on the other, with regard to compensation for damage done during the fighting on the territory of the latter countries between allied and German troops; and to what extent compensation will be payable by the Allies in this connection.

Mr. Noel-Baker
