49. Captain A. EVANS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is now in a position to state the policy of His Majesty's Government in relation to the debt payments due to the United States of America on the 15th June next?
I am not yet in a position to make a statement on this subject, but I hope to do so shortly.
§ 54. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered the proposal put before 29 him by the right hon. Member for New-castle-under-Lyme as to a method of paying the debt owed to America?
I have considered the proposal submitted to me by the right hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood), but the disadvantages of the scheme do not appear to me to be counterbalanced by any corresponding advantages.
