HC Deb 26 March 1947 vol 435 cc194-5W
35. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what was the extent of the personal fortunes of Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering at the end of the war; where they were lodged; whether they have been expropriated; to what have they been devoted; and if he is satisfied that the fortunes have been completely traced.

Mr. J. Hynd

Full information is not yet available but the four occupying powers are doing everything possible to trace such property, both inside and outside Germany, so that it can be seized along with that of other war criminals. British inquiries have so far failed to trace any assets outside Germany which can definitely be established as the personal property of Hitler or Goering. Inside the British zone and the British sector of Berlin no bank account or personal property belonging to Hitler has been found, but bank balances and securities of Goering's, to the nominal value of four million reichsmarks, have been traced and seized.
