HC Deb 16 November 1960 vol 630 c34W
37. Mr. Teeling

asked the Lord Privy Seal what steps are being taken to obtain from the United States authorities concerned compensation for damage done to British property in the Philippines during the last war.

Mr. Heath

The United States War Damage Commission recommended in 1953 that the State Department should review this problem with a view to reaching lump sum settlements of these claims. Her Majesty's Government have been urging the United States Government to give effect to that recommendation. These efforts are continuing.
