§ 48. Mr. Dumpleton
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many British subjects have entered claims for war losses in respect of property situated in the Russian zone of Germany; and what is the position as regards the settlement of such claims.
§ Mr. Mayhew
In the absence of any international arrangements for compensation for war damage in respect of property in Germany, no such claims are accepted at present. I regret that, until there is a peace treaty or an international agreement, covering claims of this kind, my right hon. Friend can offer no hope of their settlement.
