HC Deb 30 November 1949 vol 470 cc1122-3
19. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what use will the nine synthetic and rubber plants, now excluded from the dismantling list in Western Germany, be put; and whether it is intended to maintain the illegality of German manufacture of oil and rubber.

Mr. Mayhew

The answer to the second part of the Question is, "Yes, Sir." The answer to the first part is, that subject to the maintenance of the prohibitions laid down in the Washington Agreement of April, 1949, the future use of these plants is now a matter for German decision.
