NOTICE.


Termination of the state of War with Germany.

It is notified that the formal state of War with Germany is terminated as from today, the
9th July, 1951.
On the instructions of His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, the
United Kingdom High Commissioner in Germany addressed a communication to the Federal Govern-
ment of Germany in the following terms:
His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom, bearing in mind that on 3rd
September, 1939, a state of war was notified with the German Reich,
that active hostilities were ended by the Declaration regarding the Surrender of the
German Reich issued on the 5th June, 1945,
but nevertheless a formal state of war with Germany has continued to subsist so far
as Municipal law of the United Kingdom is concerned, and will so continue until
appropriate action is taken by His Majesty's Government to lerminate it,
that through circumstances beyond German control it has as yet proved impossible
to conclude a Treaty which would dispose of questions arising out of the state of war
with the German Reich, have determined that, without prejudice to the Occupation
Statute, or to the decision of questions the settlement of which must await the conclusion
of a Treaty, the formal state of war between the United Kingdom and Germany shall be
immediately terminated.
A notification is, therefore, being published that the formal state of war with
Germany has terminated on the 9th July, 1951."
His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom must reserve the right to retain any money
or property subject to control by virtue of Trading with the Enemy legislation or in the custody of any
prize court but they desire to recall that under that legislation no obstacle has been placed since 29th
March, 1949, in the way of the resumption of full commercial and financial dealings between persons in
the United Kingdom and persons in Germany or of the acquisition of property not then subject to
control, and this position will remain unaltered.
Contracts concluded before the war between persons in the United Kingdom and persons in
Germany will also remain subject to Trading with the Enemy legislation, but contracts concluded on or
after 29th March, 1949, have been in the same position as contracts concluded with persons in any
friendly country and no obstacles have been or will be raised in connexion with them by reason of the
fact that a formal state of war has previously existed between the United Kingdom and Germany.
