HC Deb 12 May 1947 vol 437 cc95-6W
11. Mr. Mikardo

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the value of the goods which can be classified as non-monetary gold, found in the British zones of Germany and Austria; and how much has already been transferred to the Inter-Governmental Committee for Refugees in accordance with the final act of the Paris Conference on Reparations.

Mr. McNeil

The relevant section of the Final Act of the Paris Conference on Reparations refers only to Germany and not to Austria. The value of the non-monetary gold found in Germany has not yet been assessed and no payments have been made to the inter-governmental Committee on Refugees.
