HC Deb 05 July 1955 vol 543 cc76-7W
63. Mr. Janner

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress has been made in the negotiations with the Czechoslovak Government in respect of payments due from them since 30th June, 1954, under the Anglo-Czechoslovak Agreement, 1949, Command Paper No. 7797, so that the Foreign Compensation Commission can continue its own payments to various applicants.

Sir E. Boyle

The Czechoslovak Government were informed in a Note presented on 7th April, 1955, that Her Majesty's Government were ready to resume discussions on all outstanding debts and claims. The reply of the Czechoslovak Government was handed to Her Majesty's Chargé d' Affaires in Prague on 29th June, and has just been received in London. It is now being studied.
