The position is as stated in the note which was addressed to the United States Government on 10th December last (Command Paper No. 5330), and I have no further statement to make.
The United States Government are not considering putting forward any proposals, so far as I am aware.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether we are prepared to have what is known as the clean slate for all these debts owing by all the countries?
