HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 c2100
51. Mr. William Teeling

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Austrian Government has yet entered into negotiations, as promised after the meeting in London last July, for some immediate payment on the outstanding Austrian loan debts; and what steps Her Majesty's Government is taking to obtain such payments.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I understand that the Austrian Government are likely to propose debt negotiations on an international basis after the conclusion of the Conference on German External Debts.
