HC Deb 11 November 1941 vol 374 c2014
6. Sir John Mellor

asked the Undersecretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has any statement to make with regard to the proposals of the city of Montreal for the future service of its loans issued in the United Kingdom.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Captain Crookshank)

I have been asked to reply. His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom have not been asked to intervene in this matter and could not usefully do so, and accordingly I have no statement to make.

Sir J. Mellor

As these loans are liable to be requisitioned, is not the Treasury interested as well as the bond holders?

Captain Crookshank

I cannot add to what I have said.
