HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 cc192-3
50. Mr. Marples

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether reparation deliveries out of the British zone of occupation in Germany have yet ceased.

Mr. J. Hynd

No, Sir.

Mr. Marples

Can the hon. Gentleman say when these deliveries will cease?

Mr. Hynd

I cannot say that the deliveries will cease. All I can say is that the deliveries are continuing in accordance with the allocations which have been made in the British and other zones.

Viscount Hinchingbrooke

Are war factories and shipyards still being dismantled and destroyed as part of the reparation policy? Is that being proceeded with?

Mr. Hynd

The elimination of the German war potential, in accordance with the obligation of the Potsdam Agreement, is being carried out. Direct war potential is being eliminated in accordance with the Potsdam Agreement, either by destruction or by allocation, for reparation purpose?. The inter-allied Reparations Conference is still continuing.
