No. 1105
Proposal by the British Delegation

Italian Reparations

British Proposal

Italy shall be liable to make reparation to those of the United Nations against which she went to war. It is recognized, however, that such reparation must not be at the expense of those States which are furnishing or may continue to furnish Italy with minimum essential supplies or at the expense of the maintenance of Italy’s economic stability.

It is recommended that the Council of Foreign Ministers should deal with the problem on this basis when considering the Italian peace treaty.
