HC Deb 01 March 1909 vol 1 cc1239-40W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he would state the amount of French capital formerly invested here, either in the form of securities or of deposits, that has been withdrawn in consequence of the convention concluded by the Prime Minister and the French Minister of Finance, by which information is to be given as to the estates of the deceased subjects of their respective countries?


I have no statistics which throw any light on this question, nor am I in a position to say whether the Convention referred to has in fact had the effect attributed to it by the hon. Member.
