HC Deb 17 November 1955 vol 546 c47W
3. Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total of the Czechoslovakian debts due to this country which must be settled before increased trade with Czechoslovakia will be permitted.

Sir E. Boyle

The total amount of the debts due from Czechoslovakia is about £23 million. We have invited the Czechoslovak Government to work out with us an arrangement for the resumption of payments in respect of these debts and to examine at the same time the question of increasing trade between our two countries.
