asked the Prime Minister whether any money payments originating in British Territories, whether arising from public Grants or private possessions, are being paid or are being held up for the credit of the Duke of Albany, the Duke of Cumberland, and Count Taafe, or whether the recent expulsion from the peerage of the persons named as traitors ipso facto involves confiscation of their properties in British territory?

I am not aware of any such payments. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to Section 3 (1) of the Titles Deprivation Act of 1917.
