§ 81. Mr. T. Reid
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the compensation of over £800,000 awarded by the International Court to Britain against Albania for the murder of British sailors in the Corfu Channel in 1946, has yet been paid; and if he will refuse to support Albania's application for membership of the United Nations until it is paid.
§ Mr. Turton
The Albanian Government have not yet paid the compensation which was awarded to Her Majesty's Government by the International Court. Her Majesty's Government will continue to refuse to support Albania's application for membership of the United Nations while the Albanian Government demonstrate their unwillingness to accept the obligations of the United Nations Charter.
