HC Deb 12 March 1951 vol 485 c122W
103. Mr. Usborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in regard to the case of Magda Baumann, whose contributions to her pension fund at Dartington School, where she was a teacher before the war, have been claimed by the Custodian of Enemy Property, how often Section 1 (6) of the Distribution of German Enemy Property Act, 1949, has been invoked.

Mr. Bottomley

So far there has been no opportunity for invoking these powers, but the comparable powers under the Trading with the Enemy (Custodian) Order, 1939, have been used in a very large number of cases.
