§ 67. Sir F. WISE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if there are any unfunded war debts due to Britain; and, if so, what are they and what are the amounts?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
No Funding Agreement has yet been signed in respect of the War debts due to this country by Russia, the Serb-Croat-Slovene Kingdom, Portugal and Greece, nor of the post-War Debts of the Serb-Croat-Slovene Kingdom and Lithuania. The amounts outstanding on 31st March, 28 1926, are given on page 96 of the Finance Accounts, 1925–6. In round figures these amounts are:
As my hon. Friend is aware, the Funding Agreement signed in respect of the French War Debt of £647,000,000 (published as Command Paper 2692) has not yet been ratified by the French Legislature.
£ Russia 794,500,000 Serb-Croat-Slovene Kingdom (War and post-War) 34,000,000 Portugal 23,500,000 Greece 21,000,000 Lithuania 348,000
The payment of the Relief Debt of Austria (£12,000,000) has been postponed till 1943, and is, therefore, in a separate category.
§ Colonel WOODCOCK
Has the right hon. Gentleman noticed the statement that an offer to reduce the debt of Portugal has been made by England for £6,000,000, and can lie say whether there is any verification of that statement?
