HC Deb 28 March 1923 vol 162 c575W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has considered the position of enemy aliens from Austria whose businesses were confiscated and sold in the early days of the War and who have now become Allies as citizens of the Czeeho-slovakian Republic; and is he taking any steps to restore their property?

Viscount WOLMER

Yes, Sir. The matter is dealt with in Article 249 (b) of the Treaty of Peace and the property, or the proceeds thereof, of persons who show that they have acquired Allied nationality under the conditions there laid down is being released to them.
