HC Deb 23 June 1924 vol 175 c20
25. Mr. ALDEN

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now state the position taken up by the Governments of Latvia and Esthonia with regard to the payment of debts incurred by these Governments in establishing their independence; and whether the British claim includes the cost of any assistance rendered to General Yudenich's Army?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. William Graham)

The Governments named have instructed their representatives in London to enter into negotiations with the Treasury. These negotiations are now in progress. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
