HC Deb 11 April 1940 vol 359 c722W
Captain Strickland

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to set up a register of claims by British nationals arising out of debts due by firms in Germany, and in the countries occupied by Germany, liquidation of British property, &c., as was done in the case of the last war; and, if so, when the register is likely to commence operations?

Mr. Shakespeare

It has been decided to set up a register of debts due to persons in this country from enemies as soon as the necessary details can be settled.
