HC Deb 31 March 1947 vol 435 c264W
102. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations have been made to the Governments of Spain and the Argentine since the end of the war with the object of discovering the extent of the private fortunes which Hitler deposited in their countries and what has been the result.

Mr. McNeil

No representations have been made to any Government with specific reference to Hitler's private fortunes, but every effort is being made to trace all German external assets throughout the world. It would hardly be possible to make representations to a foreign Government of the nature suggested in the absence of evidence regarding the deposit by Hitler of funds in the country concerned.
