HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 c852W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that there are in Scotland retired engineers and others who were employed in Denmark and have been in receipt of pensions from their former Danish employers; that these pensions have been stopped since the German occupation of Denmark; and whether he will consider making regulations for the payment into a fund of sums due by British nationals to Danish firms, and the payment from such fund of the pensions due to such retired persons who are at present sustained by the assistance of friends?

Sir K. Wood

I regret that an arrangement such as my hon. and learned Friend suggests is not practicable.
