§ 16. Mr. HUDSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what portion of the proposed loan to Hungary will be floated in this country; and if the Government proposes to guarantee it under the Trade Facilities Act?
It is impossible at this stage to make any statement with regard to the issue of a Hungarian loan. 488 The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative; such loan not being within the terms of the Act.
§ Mr. HUDSON
Has any demand been made by the right hon. Gentleman, as a preliminary to these loans, to insist that the persecution that is now going on against the trade unionists of Hungary shall cease?
