HC Deb 08 March 1945 vol 408 c2247W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for War to which of the liberated or occupied countries we have appointed economic experts to the Allied Control Commissions; and if he can give the names of our representatives and their qualifications.

Sir J. Grigg

In liberated countries there are no such commissions. About 90 British officers are employed with the Economic Division of the Allied Commission in Italy and with the Economic Sections of the British Delegations to the Allied Control Commissions in Rumania, Bulgaria, Hungary and Finland. These officers are chosen for their fitness to carry out the duties of their posts. It would, however, be contrary to the normal practice to give their names or their detailed qualifications.
