§ 64. Mr. Oram
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the approach recently made by Mr. Dean Rusk to the West German Foreign Minister in support of the claim by Yugoslavia for compensation for 10W Yugoslav victims of Nazism; and whether he will associate Her Majesty's Government with this approach.
§ Mr. Mathew
I have seen reports of a message sent by Mr. Rusk to Dr. Schroeder but I have no precise details of its contents. The question of compensation is a matter for negotiation between the Yugoslav and Federal German Governments and I do not consider that intervention by Her Majesty's Government would be helpful.
§ 65. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether agreement has yet been reached with the Federal German Government in respect of compensation due to victims of the Nazis.
§ Mr. P. Thomas
Negotiations have reached an advanced stage and my right hon. Friend hopes to make a statement in the near future.
