§ MR. MONTAGU
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, as foreshadowed in his reply to a question on 3rd July, 1890, any arrangement can be made with the French and Turkish Governments for the conversion or repayment of the Turkish Four per Cent. Guaranteed Stock and Drawn Bonds, on which an excessive interest continues to be paid by this country jointly with France?
§ MR. GOSCHEN
I am unable at present to state whether any arrangement can or cannot be made with the Governments in question for the repayment of the loan mentioned by the hon. Gentleman. It is a desirable object, but of course it is a matter for negotiation with the Governments concerned.
