HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 c118W
Mr. Robson-Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when it is proposed to commence negotiations with the Japanese Government regarding her sterling balances.

The present Sterling Payments Agreement with Japan expires on 31st August. Discussions with the Japanese Government are, therefore, likely to take place during the summer, but no arrangements have yet been made.
