§ 53. Mr. MORGAN JONES
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give an assurance that the existing general prohibition against the flotation of foreign loans on the London financial market will not be relaxed in favour of Japan, which is understood to be contemplating an approach to that market, in view of the ill-effect which the flotation of such a loan in London would have on public opinion in Great Britain and abroad?
§ Mr. COOPER
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for East Fulham (Mr. Wilmot) on the 8th November. I may, however, add that I have no reason to suppose that there is any foundation for the rumour alluded to in the question.
