HC Deb 01 August 1912 vol 41 cc2224-5
6. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what conditions Russia has formulated in respect of the payment of her portion of the advance of the Anglo-Russian loan to Persia?


The only advance actually made by the two Governments to Persia is that of the 20th March last, the conditions of which were laid on the Table of the House in Persia No. 2 (1912). A further small advance has recently been discussed, but no definite conditions have yet been formulated.

Sir J. D. REES

Is the loan "held up" through want of compliance with some condition on the part of Persia?


The definite conditions on the part of the Russian Government in regard to their share of the further small advance have not yet been actually formulated; of course, the loan cannot be raised until the conditions are fulfilled.
