§ 7. Mr. TURTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the proposal of the Turkish Government to abstain from payment of interest on the Ottoman Loan for a period of five yea as in defiance of the agreement the Turkish Government concluded with the bondholders in February, 1928; and whether he will make representations to the Turkish Government, in protection of the interests of English bondholders, requesting that Government to fulfil the obligations of the agreement?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
I have seen such reports in the Press; but I have not yet received any official information on the subject.
§ Mr. TURTON
Will the right hon. Gentleman state whether the rumoured proposal of the Turkish Government is a result of advice from the Secretary of State for War?
