HC Deb 12 May 1988 vol 133 c206W
Mr. Galloway

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when those British citizens entitled to compensation for the confiscation of their property, during the Bolshevik revolution of 1917 will receive the funds; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

It is hoped that payments to successful property claimants will be made towards the end of 1989. At the same time, a final payment will be made to successful bond claimants who received an interim payment of 10 per cent. of the face value of a bond at the end of last year.
