§ Mr. A. Lewis
asked the Paymaster-General whether he will ensure, when arranging the terms of the Treasury loan to Messrs. Colvilles, 'hat the period of repayment and interest rates charged will be on a par with that operating in the recognised money market, and that no special or favourable terms will be granted to Messrs. Colvilles.
