HC Deb 27 May 1921 vol 142 c470W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is prepared to recommend that property of British-born women resident in this country now retained by the Controller of Enemy Debts should be released in view of the recent decision of Mr. Justice Russell that people who have lost their German nationality without acquiring another must be regarded as stateless?


The hon. Member no doubt refers to the question of British-born women married to German subjects or the widows of German subjects. The judgment given by Mr. Justice Russell in the case of Stoeck would have no application to their case.
