HC Deb 14 November 1933 vol 281 c743W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make representations to the Government of the United States of America that the amount of future payments, if any, agreed in settlement of War Debts shall take the form of a short term credit, without interest, to be placed in this country at the disposition of the United States of America so that, if they so desire, it can be liquidated by the purchase of British goods and services?
