HC Deb 16 November 1920 vol 134 c1718W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the British Government has approved of the agreement between the Anglo-Persian Oil Company and other British oil companies and the French group headed by Sir Basil Zaharoff; and whether the British Government proposes to invest any sums in the French company in consequence of this agreement?


I cannot add anything to the reply given by the Chancellor of the Exchequer to the hon. Member for Springburn (Mr. Macquisten) on the 8th instant. In regard to the second part of the question, the answer is "No, Sir!"
