§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury when it is proposed to take into consideration the case made out by public bodies in Ireland for obtaining loans at 3¼ per cent. for objects of public work; 516 and whether any relief of taxation arising from these loans at their present high rates of interest may be expected next year.
(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) This subject will probably come up for discussion shortly on the Public Works Loans Bill, and I do not think it desirable to make any statement before then.
