§ 41 and 42. Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked (1) whether America is a party to the Inter- 1825 Allied Commission charged with the control and discipline of the Army of the Rhine;
(2) whether the American troops serving with the Army of the Rhine are under the supreme command of Marshal Foch, or whether their movements are subject to the veto of Washington?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
There is no Inter-Allied Commission charged with the control or discipline of the Army of the Rhine. All the Rhine troops, with the exception of the Americans, are under General Degoutte. The American troops are subject to the orders of the President at Washington as Commander-in-Chief of the American Army.
Can the right hon. Gentleman say approximately the number of American troops on the Rhine?
§ 50. Brigadier-General CROFT
asked what monetary payments have now been made by Germany to the British Empire for reparation and the upkeep of the armies of occupation, respectively?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I must refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 25th March to a similar question by my hon. Friend the Member for Southwark (Central).
§ Brigadier-General CROFT
Has there been no change in the situation since then? Is Germany paying anything now?
§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
Do the Government agree with the French Government that the concessions to Germany under the Peace Treaty have gone far enough?
