HC Deb 30 November 1937 vol 329 cc1880-1
51. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, since the £40,000,000 lent to the French State railways last January had his approval, he has approved of the proposal to raise a similar or smaller loan in London itself as a continuation of this borrowing?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir John Simon)

No such proposal is before me.

Mr. De la Bère

Will the right hon. Gentleman be particularly careful that he does not fall to the blandishments of some of our foreign creditors?

Sir J. Simon

That is a hypothetical question.
