HC Deb 14 March 1946 vol 420 c1282
52. Mr. Wilson Harris

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he has any information as to the present whereabouts and future destiny of the collection of coins in the Kaiser Friedrich Museum in Berlin.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Mr. John Hynd)

No, Sir, but inquiries are being made, and I will communicate with the hon. Member. The Kaiser Friedrich Museum is not in the British sector of Berlin.

Mr. Harris

Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that the contents of this museum are a matter of international concern, and that inter-Allied discussions should take place before there is any question of their dispersal?

Mr. Hynd

We have no information on this case at the moment, and inquiries are now being made as to the facts.
