HC Deb 07 May 1923 vol 163 c1950W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the fact that, while the Allies, other than France, have placed practically the whole of the orders for deliveries in kind by Germany to which they were entitled during 1922, the French Government has only placed orders for approximately £13,695,000 out of the £47,500,000 to which it was entitled; and whether he will ascertain from the French Government the reasons why the claims made by them were substantially less than the amount due?


I am aware of the position referred to by the hon. Member in the first part of his question. The answer to the second part is in the negative.
