Mr. Wall

asked the First Secretary of State what Government loans have been made to the Rhodesian Federation; and what guarantees have been given by Her Majesty's Government in relation to them.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The only loan made by Her Majesty's Government to the Federal Government was a £5 million Commonwealth Assistance loan under Section 3 of the Export Guarantees Act to help meet the cost of the development programmes of the Federal and Southern Rhodesia Governments. This loan was available from 1st April, 1962, and its availability expires in March, 1964. The terms and conditions are those normally applicable to Section 3 loans.
