HC Deb 25 October 1954 vol 531 c223W
71. Mr. M. Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations have been made to the Hungarian Government about the claims of Mr. L. E. Bressey for compensation in respect of expropriation of property, and for reinstatement of his pension; and with what result.

Mr. Turton

By an exchange of Notes of 19th August the Hungarian Government reaffirmed their intention to settle United Kingdom claims and agreed to start negotiations on or before 1st September, 1955, for a final settlement. Mr. Bressey's claims will be considered during those negotiations.

Her Majesty's Legation at Budapest have frequently addressed the Hungarian Government about Mr. Bressey's pension, requesting them to pay the pension, with arrears, in sterling. The Hungarian Government have so far evaded the request.
