HC Deb 04 May 1955 vol 540 cc144-5W
Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps Her Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom propose to take to accept membership of the International Finance Corporation.

Sir E. Boyle

The proposed Articles of Agreement of the International Finance Corporation are acceptable to Her Majesty's Government. Her Majesty's Government will therefore make proposals to Parliament to provide for United Kingdom participation in the Corporation when we have assurance that the United States and other prospective members intend to proceed similarly.
