§ Mr. Currie
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what representations he has made to the Government of the Congo with a view to the payment of compensation to the dependants of British nationals killed in that country during the hostilities there; and whether he will make a statement indicating the procedure to be followed by such dependants desirous of making a claim for compensation.
§ Mr. Padley
No general approach on the question of compensation for the dependants of British nationals who have been killed in the Congo has been made to the Congolese Government, but assistance has been given with individual claims. If any dependants wish to know whether and if so how they can claim compensation they should write giving full particulars to the Foreign Office who will do their best to advise them.
