HC Deb 24 June 1974 vol 875 cc326-7W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether a settlement has yet been reached with the Romanian Government over compensation following the sequestration of the assets of the Royal Dutch Shell Group.

Mr. Hattersley

We have so far failed to reach a claims agreement with the Romanian Government but in 1971 Shell and an appropriate Romanian organisation concluded a long-term arrangement which included procedures for settlement of certain financial questions.
