§ 31. Sir FRANK NELSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the subsequent political changes in the French Government, he is in a position to confirm that Great Britain would receive, during the current financial year from France, the sum of £4,000,000 on account of the French War Debt, as promised in April last by M. Péret, the then French Finance Minister?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)
I have no doubt whatever that the promise given to me by M. Péret in the name of the French Government will be duly fulfilled.
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
When a promise is definitely made by a responsible Minister of a foreign Government, one has every reason to believe it will be adhered to. That is certainly my hope.
