asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is yet in a position to make an announcement regarding the appointment of the advisory committee on the distribution of German enemy property.

Mr. H. Wilson

I have been fortunate enough to secure the services of Sir John Morison to act as Chairman of the Advisory Committee, and the other members will be as follows:

Mr. R. G. H. Buxton; Mr. E. H. Lever; Mr. D. M. Oppenheim; Mr. J. A. Pollen; Sir Edward Reid, O.B.E.; Mr. R. Willis; Sir Henry S. Gregory, K.C.M.G., C.B.; Mr. A. W. McKenzie.

The Committee will advise, as regards the distribution of German enemy property under the Distribution of German Enemy Property Act, 1949, on the classes of claims to be admitted to, or excluded from, the scheme of distribution; the manner and time in which claims should be presented; the scheme, or schemes, of distribution between the classes and the priorities, if any, to be established; and on any other matters arising out of the Act which may be referred to them from time to time.
