HC Deb 10 October 1912 vol 42 c542W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the terms arranged with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Company, Limited, for the issue of the proposed China loans and the proportions reserved, respectively, for Germany and Great Britain?


I am not aware of any terms having been arranged for the issue of loans made by the six-Power group to the Chinese Government. Such an arrangement would in present circumstances seem premature With regard to the second part of the question, it has been agreed that each of the six groups shall be entitled to an equal share in any loan which may be negotiated.
