§ MR. STUART SAMUEL (Tower Hamlets, Whitechapel)
I beg to ask Mr. 43 Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can state to what colonies up to the present time sums have been advanced by the Treasury under the Colonial Loans Act, 1899, and for what purposes, to what amounts, and at what rates of interest; also the date on which each such loan was granted and the date fixed for its repayment.
§ *SIR M. HICKS BEACH
The information asked for cannot be satisfactorily given within the limits of an answer to a question. I will lay a Return on the Table.
