§ 44. Mr. ALBERY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he initiated negotiations with the French Government concerning the repayment of French national defence loan bonds held by British investors; and if he can now state the result of such negotiations?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
Representations have been addressed to the French 196 Government regarding the position of British holders of French Government loans issued in this country during the War. I understand that the French Government's reply has just been received in this country, but I have not yet seen it.
