asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Hungarian landowners in Czecho-Slovakia are receiving their rents; and whether Hungarian landowners in Rumania have had their properties confiscated?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

As to the first part of the question, I have no information. As regards the second part, I understand that the Expropriation Law in force in the old Kingdom of Rumania was automatically applied to the new provinces on their absorption; Hungarian landowners would, therefore, seem to be in the same position as landlords of any other origin.
