Mr. B. DENNISS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Bulgarian statesmen and representatives of commerce are about to visit this country with a view to making purchases of British products; and, if so, if le will say, for the guidance of British traders as to the state of Bulgarian credit whether the interest is being paid on Bulgarian Government loans held by British subjects?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
The Bulgarian Prime Minister, accompanied by technical advisers, is at present in this country, and is making inquiries in regard to certain commodities required by Bulgarian Government Departments, such as railway materials and agricultural machinery. As far as I am aware, no arrangements have been made up to the present for the payment in London of interest on Bulgarian Government loans held by British subjects. I should add that the Board of Trade have decided to include Bulgaria in the list of countries to which the Export Credit Scheme is applicable.
