§ 2. Commander SOUTHBY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to state what progress, if any, has been made in the matter of the satisfactory settlement of the claims for the payment of interest on the bonds of the city of Vilna?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
The negotiations to which I referred in my reply to the hon. and gallant Member on the 3rd December are still continuing; and we are doing what we can to expedite a settlement.
§ Commander SOUTHBY
Is the right hon. Gentleman hopeful of a settlement being arrived at in the near future?
Well, on the last occasion when I answered the hon. and gallant Member, I was a little hopeful, but the position varies almost from week to week.
