HL Deb 30 June 1948 vol 157 cc91-2

My Lords, I beg leave to ask the second question standing in my name on the Order Paper.

[The question was as follows:

To ask His Majesty's Government, in view of the fact that the United Kingdom is making a loan of £10,000,000 to France to enable that country to meet her sterling deficit, whether they will investigate the desirability of increasing the £35 limit for foreign travel in so far as it is applicable to French francs; the additional sterling involved being a charge against the loan.]


No, my Lords. We will bear the possibility in mind, but I am afraid there is a serious objection to a differential rate in the case of one particular country.
