HC Deb 26 September 1944 vol 403 cc68-9W
Sir. J. Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare if his attention has been called to an Order of the Eire Government, dated 11th August, requiring all Irish residents owing money to German firms or individuals to pay the money to the Eire Government; and what steps he has taken to prevent this money going to Germany.

Mr. Foot

Yes, Sir. I understand that the money collected under this Order is to be used to liquidate in part the liability of the German Government to the Government of Eire. The second part of the Question does not therefore arise.
