HC Deb 23 June 1948 vol 452 c145W
99. Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware of the hardship caused by the devaluation of the German currency to British subjects who have property in Germany, on which the income has been blocked since the Hitler régime; and what action he proposes to take to deal with the matter.

Mr. McNeil

The provisions for the treatment of bank balances under financial reform in Germany have not yet been announced. I am, therefore, unable to speak of their application to the British holders of such balances today.
