§ 49. Sir WALDRON SMITHERS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any of the British banks still have in their possession sums of money sent by the late Russian Government for the purpose of paying coupons and bonds drawn 673 for redemption; and can he take any steps to enable this money to be used in the interests of the bondholders?
So far as I am aware, the money provided by the late Russian Government for the purpose of paying coupons and drawn bonds was made available for that purpose. The second part of the question does not therefore arise.
