HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 c26W
87. Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will attempt to secure an agreement with the Government of the Republic of Indonesia in regard to compensation for British firms and property, or on permitting the firms to return to run these concerns.

Mr. William Rodgers

The Indonesian Government have already declared their intention to hand back the property of British firms or to pay compensation in cases where the owners do not wish to return to Indonesia. Individual agreements have already been concluded by some firms; and others are in progress. No Governmental agreement is necessary.
