HC Deb 26 June 1940 vol 362 c460W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the case of loans free of interest to the Government, he will permit a condition attached by the lender that, in the event of his death before the end of the war, the loan should be repaid at the request of his personal representatives?

Sir K. Wood

In the event of the death of the lender during the currency of an interest-free loan to the Government, I should be prepared to authorise repayment to his personal representatives whenever that course is desired. It is not necessary therefore for a lender to make a specific condition to that effect.
