HC Deb 07 March 1923 vol 161 c544W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in reference to his statement on 14th December last that His Majesty's Government were then in communication with the Rumanian Government as to the method in which British companies whose properties were destroyed by the British Commission more than six years ago will receive compensation; whether he can now state the result of these communications; and, having regard to the urgency of a settlement to many of these companies, whether he can state when the promised compensation will be paid?


The situation has not changed materially since this question was raised by the hon. Member in December last. Although the amount of the compensation due has been settled, His Majesty's Government are still in negotiation with the Rumanian Government as regards the method of payment to be adopted.
