§ 58. Mr. NEWBOULD
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the estimate of the financial commitments which the Government will undertake if the Anglo-Persian agreement is ratified by the Persian parliament?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The agreement which was laid before Parliament in 1919 (Command 300) provides for a loan of £2,000,000 at 7 per cent., of which one moiety will be provided by the Government of India.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
What does the right hon. Gentleman mean by being "laid before Parliament"? We were not asked to ratify this agreement.
