HC Deb 21 March 1923 vol 161 c2594W

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the second payment on account, supplementing the instalment made on 15th January last, will be disbursed to British claimants in respect of the judgments given in their favour by the Anglo-German Mixed Arbitral Tribunal for their claims under Article 297 (e) of the Treaty of Peace?

Viscount WOLMER

It is not possible to name a definite date for the payment of a further dividend in respect of the claims referred to. As my hon. Friend is aware, the matter depends upon the progress made in the realisation of German property in this country, and he may rest assured that as soon as the requisite funds are available a further dividend will be paid.
