HC Deb 23 November 1920 vol 135 cc223-4
59. Mr. G. THORNE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) whether any amount additional to the £18,000,000 voted in Vote 10, Unclassified Services, Sub-head A, has been granted to any ally since the publication of the Estimates; (2) whether he can state the names of the allies to whom loans are made, Vote 10, Unclassified Services, Sub-head A, and the amount which is paid to each?


The advances made from Sub-head A of the Vote for Loans to Allies are in respect of remanets, or adjustments, arising out of the War. The actual advances in the current year to date are as follow:—

To France 4,318,492
To Italy 110,000
To Belgium 13,000
To Serbia 414,744
To Roumania 5,214
Total £4,861,450
Further advances will be necessary before the close of the year, but I anticipate that the total will be well within the voted sum.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any contribution has been made to the Greeks in Anatolia?


I must have notice of that question.
