§ 20. Mr. Molson
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare whether he is aware that American banks in France have been invited to participate in a credit bank for the rehabilitation of the European economy, which would finance the production of enemy war material; and whether he will request the American Government to forbid their banks to take part in this project?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Economic Warfare (Mr. Dingle Foot)
I have seen a report in the Press to this effect and have instituted inquiries on the matter. The report is also receiving the attention of the United States Government, who will, I have no doubt, take all possible steps to prevent institutions under their control assisting the Axis.
