In order to hasten the determina-
tion of outstanding claims by nation-
als of the United Kingdom under
Article 78 of the Treaty of Peace
with Italy, H.M. Government in the
United Kingdom on March 29th,
1957 entered into a Memorandum of
Understanding with the Italian
Government providing (intpr alia)
that NO CLAIMS BY UNITED
KINGDOM NATIONALS CAN BE
PRESENTED TO THE ITALIAN
GOVERNMENT AFTER SEPTEM-
BER 28TH, 1957.*

The Italian Government have
agreed to communicate their decisions
on all outstanding claims already
presented to them, by March 28th
1958, and as regards any further new
claims which may be received by
them between the date of the Memo-
randum and September 28th, 1957,
will communicate their decision in
writing to H.M. Government within
twelve calendar months from the date
of receipt by the Italian Government
of such claims.

If the decision of the Italian
authorities is an absolute rejection of
the claim on legal or factual grounds,
or a partial rejection on the grounds
that no decision can be given in the
present state of the documentation or
on other grounds, H.M. Government
may request the Italian authorities
within six months from the date of
the communication, to re-examine
the claim if possible, in thl light of
the fresh documentation provided by
the claimant or for other good cause,
and the Italian Government will com-
municate to H.M. Government their
decision on such re-examination with-
in six months of the receipt by them
of the request for re-examination.

Ienlts.

(2) Awards of compensation
naile by tlih Anglo-Italian

78 of the Treaty, be payable in lire

foreign exchange control regulations
which may be in force in It.ly from

tion under Article 78 of the Treaty
and now wish to do so, are advised
that they must submit their claims

to the:

In cases where H.M. Government
