HC Deb 13 February 1922 vol 150 cc625-6W

asked the Attorney-General whether the Clearing Office for Enemy Debts established in this country in accordance with Article 296 of the Treaty of Versailles renders any, and what, assistance to British nationals who desire to obtain payment of debts due to them from nationals of Germany and other late enemy countries; and whether its sole function is the collection from British nationals of debts alleged to be due from them to persons in Germany and elsewhere?


I have been asked to reply. I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy of the Report of the Controller of the Clearing Office, in which he will find a full account of the work of the office, which has paid to British creditors of Germany up to date sums amounting in the aggregate to over £45,000,000.
