HC Deb 12 July 1923 vol 166 cc1625-6W
Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can hold out prospects of an early settlement of the claims for payment in sterling put forward by British shareholders in the Szent Lorincz Slatina Nasici Railway?


Claims through the clearing office against this railway company have up to the present been contested by the Hungarian Clearing Office. The Administrator of Hungarian Property is in communication with the Hungarian Clearing Office in the endeavour to secure withdrawal of the contests and admission of the claims without further delay, but failing such admission it will be necessary to refer the matter to the Anglo-Hungarian Mixed Arbitral Tribunal for decision.
