Lieut.-Colonel Sir F. HALL:47.
asked the Prime Minister whether this country is jointly responsible with its Allies for the decisions of the Reparation Commission as to the indemnity payments to be made by Germany; and, in view of the accumulation of evidence that Germany is able but unwilling to meet her financial obligations, what steps the Government proposes to take to enforce the treaty undertakings entered into by Germany?
I do not think I can usefully answer a question of that kind. If Germany is declared in default by the Reparation Commission, the action to be taken is a matter for consideration by the Allied Governments. I regret they have not already met, or agreed to meet, to consider what should be done, but that is not our fault.
