HC Deb 27 July 1922 vol 157 c703W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether loans raised in the City of London have recently been granted to the succession States of Austria and to Jugo-Slavia; what is the amount of those loans; and whether a measure of disarmament has been a condition upon which the issue of those loans has been approved by His Majesty's Government?


I am not aware of any loan having been raised here recently by any of the Governments of the States mentioned, with the exception of the loan of £2,800,000 raised by the Government of Czecho-Slovakia in April last. The approval of His Majesty's Government is not required for the raising of loans in this country.
