HC Deb 19 December 1932 vol 273 cc765-6W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the amounts of the obligations of the Austrian Government to the British Government, and on what dates were these obligations undertaken?

of the children attending public elementary schools, but the percentage of the total number of children on the registers of such schools on 31st March, 1932, for whom provision was made during the year ended on that date is as follows:


The only obligation of the Austrian Government to the British Government is the debt in respect of the relief supplies granted to Austria in the years 1919 to 1921. All the Governments which held Austrian Relief Bonds agreed to fund thorn in 1928 on terms which provided for a considerable reduction in the debt and for the payment of the reduced amount in 40 annuities as from 1929. The aggregate amount of the annuities thus payable to His Majesty's Government now outstanding is £8,825,000.
