§ Mr. Granville
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he will investigate the position of the claims made by Royal Naval officers who were on loan to the Royal New Zealand Navy as the delay in settling these claims is causing inconvenience to those concerned.
§ Mr. Gordon-Walker
I have for a considerable time been in touch with the New Zealand Government about the claims in question. Our discussions are still in progress and I am hopeful that it will be possible to reach an agreed settlement soon.
