§ 55. Dr. Leech
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the maltreatment of the property of British subjects under the Aranha scheme of default upon all Brazilian contractual obligations, he will appoint a Treasury official to represent British interests generally, so that any proposals next year to continue the scheme shall be controlled by a Treasury intimation of retaliatory customs duties against Brazilian products unless the scheme is 739 amended and acceptable to British creditors of Brazil?
I do not consider that it would be desirable to depart from our normal practice in such cases, which was set out in the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Lincoln (Mr. Liddall) on 5th November last, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
