asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the value of the valuable works of art collected by Hitler and other treasures found by the Allies at Berchtesgaden; whether they have been sold; and to what purpose have the proceeds been devoted.

No precise estimate of the value of these treasures can be given. They have not been sold but are being restored, under the agreed restitution procedure, to the Governments of those countries from which they were removed.
