HC Deb 01 May 1935 vol 301 c373W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that royalties due to British authors, whose works are published in translation in Germany, cannot be recovered by them owing to prohibition of payment by the German Government, while German authors, whose works are published in England, are receiving full payment from English firms; and whether any retaliatory measures can be taken to right this anomaly?


If my hon. Friend will be good enough to furnish me with detailed information, I shall be glad to give the matter consideration.
