HC Deb 20 July 1926 vol 198 c1054W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that the Government's revised Export Credits Scheme is applicable to trade done between British nationals and the nationals of Finland, Esthonia, Latvia. Lithuania. Poland, and Rumania, whether the Governments of these countries have agreed to accept responsibility for any portion of the War and pre-War debts contracted by the Tsarist Government?


No arrangement has been made for the assumption by Finland. Esthonia, Latvia, or Lithuania of responsibility for any portion of the debts contracted by the former Russian Government. As regards Poland and Rumania. I would refer the hon. Member to the provisions of Article 21 of the Treaty between Poland and the Allied and Associated Governments of 28th June, 1919, and to Article 8 of the Treaty between the principal Allied Governments and Rumania of 28th October, 1920.
