§ Mr. BROOKES
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any steps, and, if so, of what nature, were taken to popularise the new War Loan in all parts of the British Empire other than the self-governing Dominions?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
In view of the fact that local War Loans have been or are being issued in nearly all parts of the British Empire, it was not thought desirable to make any special efforts to secure subscriptions to the Imperial Loan from British Possessions outside the United Kingdom. Arrangements were, however, made to telegraph the terms of the prospectus out to most parts of the Empire, and where a local demand for such facilities appeared to exist, arrangements for receiving subscriptions have been made through Colonial Governments.
