HC Deb 02 November 1916 vol 86 cc1841-2W

asked the Prime Minister whether payments due to enemy aliens interned in this country Hinder contracts and agreements with British firms made before the outbreak of War are allowed to be made to such aliens during the War; and if so, whether the policy of the Government is to encourage or discourage such payments?


Payments to enemy aliens interned in this country are not prohibited; but, in order to prevent any money so paid finding its way to an enemy country, any person desiring to make such payment is advised to make the payment only through the commandant of the camp in which the enemy alien has been interned, or to a bank in this country to the account of the enemy alien, notice being given to the bank of the enemy nationality of the payee.
