asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he now has any information to give on the possibilities of a loan to the Burmese Government.
I have nothing to add to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 7th March.
Is my hon. Friend aware that the sooner we expedite a loan to the Burmese Government the sooner will the problem of Malaya be settled, because of the food?
There are many other factors, particularly the communal difficulty.
Will the hon. Gentleman give an undertaking that no loan will be made to the Burmese Government before they have made a satisfactory settlement with expropriated British interests?
Before the hon. Gentleman considers a loan to the Burmese Government, will he be sure there is a Government?
