HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 cc2798-9W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the amount for which the French have put in a claim to the Reparation Commission in respect of devastation in War areas; and what approximately they estimate to be their loss in revenue since the end of the War owing to this devastation?


The claim submitted for examination by the Reparation Commission was 127 milliard paper francs. The Commission arrived at a total of 132 milliard gold marks for all Allied claims, but have never indicated their assessment of individual items. As regards the second part of the question, I am not aware of any such estimate having been published.
