§ MR. ATKINSON (Boston)
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if it is true that Her Majesty's Government will guarantee a Newfoundland Government Loan of £2,000,000, or any other amount; and, if so, at what rate, and on what terms?
§ MR. GOSCHEN
The Government of Newfoundland have been informed that under certain circumstances and conditions Her Majesty's Government would be prepared to meet their wish that an Imperial guarantee should be given on a loan raised for railway and analogous purposes; but I am unable to make any statement as to terms. The matter has not reached any definite shape.
