HC Deb 14 November 1949 vol 469 c1679
51. Mr. William Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why the first payment by Yugoslavia to this country, due in September, has not been paid; and what steps are being taken to see that Yugoslavia honours her agreement.

Mr. Mayhew

The first payment by Yugoslavia under the Anglo-Yugoslav Compensation Agreement of 23rd December, 1948, is not due until 23rd December next. The second part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.

Mr. Teeling

When the hon. Gentleman says it is not due until December, does that mean that there has been no change made at all, because at one period it was definitely stated that the first payment would be in September?

Mr. Mayhew

I am not aware of that; I always thought it was 23rd December.
