HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 cc132-3W
58. Commander Noble

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many claims by British nationals for civilian compensation for loss of property, etc., in the Philippines and other parts of the Far East at the hands of the Japanese, are still outstanding; and what is the total sum involved.

Mr. Younger

All such claims registered with His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom are still outstanding as are all those claims registered in British Colonial and Protected Territories in the Far East, which have not received compensation under schemes in force there. Outstanding claims of these categories are estimated to amount to several hundred million pounds.
