§ 11. Mr. Garry Allighan
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what are the amounts of the private fortunes, seized by the Allies, of Himmler, Goebbels, Hess, Von Papen, Schacht, Schmidt and each of the Nazi criminals executed under the Nuremburg verdicts, respectively; and to what purpose they have been devoted.
§ Mr. J. Hynd
The amounts seized in the British zone of Germany are as follow:
British inquiries have so far failed to trace any assets outside Germany which can be established as the personal property of any of the Nazis in question. Full details of what additional amounts have been discovered by the Allied Powers in the other zones of Germany or outside Germany are not yet available. The amounts seized in the British zone are being held under control, pending quadripartite decision as to their disposal.
- Ribbentrop, Rm. 690,000.
- Von Papen, Rm. 721,000.
- Rosenberg, Rm. 657,000.
- Keitel, Rm. 1,045,000.
- Doenitz, Rm. 153,000.
- Goering, Rm. 4,000,000.
§ Mr. Allighan
Can the Minister tell us whether the sums that have been seized from these Nazi criminals are being devoted to relieving the plight of the German people, and thus relieving the British taxpayer?
§ 12. Mr. Allighan
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster to what purpose Goering's bank balances and securities, to the nominal value of 4,000,000 Reichmarks, seized inside the British zone, have been devoted.
§ Mr. J. Hynd
The amounts are being held under control pending quadripartite decision as to their final disposal.
