§ Mr. A. HERBERT
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?
§ Sir R. HORNE
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.
