§ 184. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the total value of British industrial property affected by nationalisation measures introduced, or notified for introduction by foreign Governments since the end of the war; the total value of property in each country concerned; and what action has been taken by His Majesty's Government to ensure that adequate compensation is paid to British owners.
§ Mr. Mayhew
It is impossible to give any figure for the overall value of British industrial property affected by recent and prospective foreign measures of nationalisation. Where British interests are affected it is the object of our policy to secure for them full and appropriate compensation. His Majesty's Government have communicated or will communicate, their views to the Governments concerned, and are giving British owners every assistance to enable them to lodge their claims in the most effective manner.
