§ Sir R. ASKE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is intended to make an immediate further distribution of at least 5s. in the £ by the Enemy Debts Department, as recently recommended by the Select Committee on Estimates?
A further dividend of 7s. 6d. in the £ was paid by the Clearing Office on the 8th July on awards under Article 297 (e) of the Treaty of Versailles, making a total distribution up to date of 15s. in the £. All awards of £50 and under have been paid in full.
