HC Deb 05 March 1925 vol 181 c669W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is the intention of the Government to endeavour to come to a settlement of the indebtedness to Great Britain of France, Italy and Belgium on lines of similarity and simultaneity; and whether he is now able to indicate in greater detail and with more precision the nature of the contemplated settlement?


I do not feel sure that the course suggested in the question would necessarily be the one most likely to lead to a satisfactory result: but I have at present no further statement to make.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister when the next Inter-Allied Conference will take place on the question of Inter-Allied debts; and whether any Conference has been arranged to take place at an early date at Brussels?


I do not anticipate that any general Conference will be called on the question of debts, and I know nothing of any such Conference at Brussels.
