§ 20. Sir F. WISE
asked the Chancellor of Exchequer if he can officially announce the position of the negotiations between the Bank of England and the Bank of France in regard to gold?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE
Can my right hon. Friend say when an announcement is likely to be made on the subject of these negotiations?
§ Sir F. WISE
As the arrangement between France and ourselves with regard to the Allied Debt had an option on gold, does not this affect the actual position of this country in regard to gold?
§ Mr. McNEILL
That may be, but I do not think that it comes under the question of my hon. Friend. As a matter of fact, these particular negotiations are private negotiations between the two banks. In so far as public interests are involved, they may arise otherwise.
