§ Mr. Boothby
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the present approximate sterling value of Czech assets blocked in this country; and the aggregate amount of the claims which have been lodged against them in respect of cash and of bonds guaranteed by the late Government of Czecho-Slovakia?
§ Sir J. Simon
In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer to the answer given to the hon. Member for North Lambeth (Mr. G. R. Strauss) on 15th June, and (as regards the sterling value of the gold included in the assets) to the reply which I gave my hon. Friend on Tuesday last. In reply to the second part of the question, it would be misleading to give any figure as to the amount of claims lodged in respect of cash and of bonds guaranteed by the late Government of Czecho-Slovakia until the claims which have been received have been completely analysed.
