§ 8. Sir PARK GOFF
asked the Secretary of State for Foregin Affairs whether since 14th February, 1934, Hungary, Yugoslavia and Rumania have completed payment to British holders of Hungarian securities under the protocol of Innsbruck and the Prague and Paris arrangements; and, if not, will he now make representations to the Governments concerned?
§ Sir J. SIMON
As far as I am aware, the answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the second part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer returned to my hon. Friend the Member for North Aberdeen (Mr. Burnett) on the 14th February.
§ 10. Sir P. GOFF
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Greek Government is seeking a foreign loan to be expended upon equipment for the Peloponnesus Railway; and will he, in view of the treatment of British investors in Greek loans, make it clear to the Greek Government that the embargo upon the public issue here of Greek loans will be continued and that a Greek loan placed here privately will not be a negotiable instrument?
§ Sir J. SIMON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The second part therefore does not arise.
§ 11. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in order to prevent misunderstanding, he will, before Dr. Aranha, the Brazilian Minister of Finance, starts for London to negotiate with the issuing houses which acted as agents for the sale in Britain of the now-defaulted Brazilian bonds, inform the Brazilian Government that the unilateral decree of default imposed upon the British creditors of Brazil is not regarded by His Majesty's Government as a satisfactory arrangement?
§ The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. Eden)
I understand that the Brazilian Minister of Finance does not intend to visit this country as suggested in the right hon. Gentleman's question, and the second part of the question does not therefore arise.
