HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 cc118-9W
97. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, in view of the hardship endured by many non-Nazi and anti-Nazi Germans who are unable to draw their Government pensions, whether, the question of allowing these men now to draw their pensions will be sympathetically reconsidered, seeing that pensions are drawn in other zones.

Mr. J. Hynd

I assume that my hon. Friend refers to pensions on non-Nazi and anti-Nazi Germans who were dismissed by the Nazis. I have no information to suggest that the position in regard to the restoration of these pensions in other zones is different from that existing in the British zone. The whole matter is however under quadripartite discussion with a view to a common policy being adopted in all four zones.
