HC Deb 27 February 1900 vol 79 cc1213-4
MR. HEDDERWTCK () Wick Burghs

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the recently announced Russian loan to Persia was concluded between Russia and Persia with the knowledge of Her Majesty's Government; and whether Her Majesty's Government have taken any, and, if so, what action in the matter.


The answer to the first paragraph is in the negative. No statement can be made as regards action by Her Majesty's Government in regard to such a matter.


Was an offer made on our part to guarantee the loan?

[No answer was given.]
