§ Sir G. JONES
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the claims of British nationals arising out of the war with Turkey have not yet been settled, and that some of the claimants are in urgent need of money through their claims not having been satisfied; and whether any steps can be taken to expedite the final settlement of such claims?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
The Inter-Allied Commission for the Assessment of Damage suffered in Turkey has completed the work of assessing the claims. Approximately 95 per cent, of the amount available for the payment of awards has already been paid to the claimants, and the balance is being distributed as quickly as possible.
