HC Deb 28 June 1926 vol 197 cc822-3
65. Sir F. WISE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if France and Italy have paid the amount due for the purchase of wheat from Britain; and how much is the amount?


The purchases of wheat by the Wheat Executive for France and Italy, to which my hon. Friend no doubt refers, were fully covered by the advances made by the French and Italian Governments, and there is no amount due to His Majesty's Government on this account.
