§ 37. Mr. MOSLEY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will state the total value in money and in kind paid as reparations 1020 by Hungary; which of the Allied Powers have received payment; and the value of such payments in each case?
§ Captain DOUGLAS KING (Lord of the Treasury)
I have been asked to answer this on behalf of my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Hungary has paid in cash for the cost of the Inter-Allied Commissions of Control and of the Budapesth Bureau of the National Services which deal with Restitution, but the exact figure is not available. Hungary has paid in cash about £35,000 to the present date for the expenses of the Reparation Commission. The total value of deliveries in kind made by Hungary on account of reparation to the 31st January, 1923, is about 36 million gold crowns, or about £1,500,000. This represents ships, rivercraft, livestock, coal and Armistice deliveries. The deliveries in kind have been made to Italy, Greece, Serbia, Rumania and Czccho-Slovakia. The Reparation Commission have not yet valued the State properties ceded by Hungary or her abandoned war material.
