HC Deb 13 March 1945 vol 409 c39W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of of State for Foreign Affairs how many seats are vacant on the Board of the Suez Canal Company; and whether the matter has been reviewed in recent and current Anglo-French financial discussions.

Mr. George Hall

There are at present three vacancies amongst the British nonofficial Directors and, so far as I am aware, nine amongst the French Directors. This question was not raised in the Anglo-French financial discussions, to which indeed it does not seem to be relevant.
