§ Captain TERRELL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if any orders for material required in connection with any of the recently-granted Crown Colony loans have been placed abroad; and, if so, the reason for this step, and the percentage placed of the total money thus expended?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
No orders for material chargeable to loans recently raised by Colonial Governments have been placed outside the British Empire. The only case of which I am aware in which an order has been placed outside this country is that referred to in the answer given to a similar question on the 2nd August, namely, a small order for chemical drugs by the Government of Ceylon.
