§ 58. Mr. R. McNEILL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any subsidy is now being paid to the Serbian Government; and what is the total amount paid by way of loan or otherwise to Serbia since 1914?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
No subsidy is now being paid to the Serbian Government, but that Government has credits in respect of relief and reconstruction loans as yet undrawn amounting to about £700,000. In addition a special grant of £25,000 a year in aid of Serbian students in this country has been voted by Parliament since 1918; this will cease in July, 1921. The amount advanced since 1914 to Serbia is approximately £22,500,000. This sum includes loans and the value of supplies made by British Government Departments to Serbia and also relief and reconstruction grants since the Armistice approximating £1,500,000.
