§ Mr. Neave
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many claims have been made under the Anglo-German Agreement of 9th June, 1964 for the compensation of victims of Nazi persecution; how many interim payments have been made; how many persons have already received compensation for permanent disability; and what is the approximate number of persons he anticipates will be eligible for compensation either as victims or dependants when the distribution of the sum of £1 million is completed.
§ Mr. George Thomson
At the final date of registration 31st March, 1966, 3,802 claims had been made. To date 870 payments have been made, and 121 persons have received payment for attributable permanent physical disability.
A considerable number of cases are still under examination so the final number of eligible claims will not be known for some weeks.
