HC Deb 07 June 1972 vol 838 c99W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much money is owed to his Department by Leonard Crickmar for fares, &c, involved in his return to Great Britain; what were the legal costs for the enforcement of judgment; what amounts have been paid off this account; and what action he proposes to take to obtain payment in full.

Mr. Kershaw

The sum of £169.08 is due from Mr. Leonard Crickmar in respect of monies advanced by Her Majesty's Government on the occasion of his repatriation from Lagos in February, 1970. Judgment for this sum, with costs, was given against Mr. Crickmar at Bow County Court on 29th March, 1972. No amounts have been paid so far. Costs are due to be assessed by Bow County Court on 16th June, 1972, and the total sum due to Her Majesty's Government as a result of his repatriation will not, therefore, be finally determined until that date. The Treasury Solicitor will thereafter take all necessary steps to secure payment.
