§ Mr. WATERSON
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will state the amount of interest paid on moneys deposited in the French and Belgian banks, ready for payment to the troops?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The rate of interest is 3 per cent. on all amounts except certain amounts in France kept with the Bank of France, which pays no interest. I am inquiring whether circumstances will now admit. of any modification of this arrangement.
