HC Deb 24 March 1938 vol 333 c1375
60. Mr. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the advisability, in view of the likelihood of default occurring in the payment of interest due on Austrian 4½ per cent. 934–59 bonds or Austrian 7 per cent. 1930 bonds, of making similar arrangements to protect the British holders of these bonds as have been already made in the case of German 5½ per cent. 1930 bonds and German 7 per cent. 1924 bonds?

Sir J. Simon

If occasion arises, His Majesty's Government will not fail to consider the best method of protecting the interests of British holders of the loans referred to in the question.
