HC Deb 09 July 1923 vol 166 cc941-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has any information that the Irish Free State Government is negotiating to obtain a guarantee by British banks of an Irish Free State loan; if His Majesty's Govern- ment has been consulted by either of the parties to any such negotiations; and if any advice has been given or any influence used by the Government in the matter?


I am not aware of any such negotiations as are suggested in the first part of the question, and the second and third parts, therefore, do not arise.
