HC Deb 10 February 1958 vol 582 cc14-5W
75. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement on the offer by the Federal Government of Germany of an interest free payment of £100 million to finance arms purchases in this country instead of paying support costs for our troops in Germany.

Mr. Simon

No. The offer made by the Federal German Government is at present under consideration and it would be inappropriate for me to say more at present.
