HC Deb 26 July 1965 vol 717 cc10-1W
53. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many applications he has received from victims in Nazi concentration camps and dependent relatives for compensation out of moneys received from the German Federal Government; and when the claims will be dealt with.

Mr. Padley

Between 24th July, 1964 and 23rd July, 1965 approximately 2,000 applications had been received. As was announced in the Press also on 23rd July, it has been decided to extend the period for registering applications from 31st July, 1965 to 31st March, 1966 since it appeared that there was still people who had not realised that they might be eligible to register an application. A payment will be made next month to those persons whose eligible applications have already been investigated and registered.
