HC Deb 24 November 1953 vol 521 cc14-5W
56. Miss Herbison

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the distribution will take place of former Roumanian property in the United Kingdom to persons having claims against Roumania.

Mr. Maudling

I very much regret the delay over this. Difficulties have arisen in getting agreement on a scheme acceptable to all the major interests concerned. We are doing our best to solve these difficulties and expedite a settlement.
