I London saturday. He Chancellor of the exchequer Hon. Neville Chamberlain who returned from Paris on thursday night had a consultation yesterday with Hon. Stanley Baldwin and other minis ters regarding was debts. The question was discussed in the Light of the american reply to the British note and tuesday s ministerial conversations in Paris. A final decision As to the terms of the communication to be addressed to the american govern ment will be recorded at a formal meeting of Cabinet. Although no meeting has yet been convened it will probably be held Early next week. The prime minister Hon. Ramsay Macdonald and the foreign minister sir John Simon will return from Geneva to attend. The Factor in the situation to which the British govern ment attaches the most importance is maintenance of. The Lausanne reparations agreement. In the situation created by the refusal of the american government to postpone the december payments consultation with the French ministers is an essential step to this end. It is understood the French prime minister m. Herriot showed ready appreciation of the British desire to preserve the Lausanne settlement intact. Although a final Cabinet decision has not yet been reached it is generally assumed Here that payments to America will be made by Britain next week and that it will be made in Gold. It is also believed payment will be accompanied by a definite proposal regarding Early examination of the whole debt question in the Light of present circumstances. A Story is current in Tho lobbies that payment of the �19,000,000 to America on thursday will merely involve the Transfer of the cold to another vault in the Bank of England where it will be earmarked for America. Britain at the same time will indicate that it will i to Tho last payment under Tho existing terms. There Are Strong expectations that Franco will take a similar course. M. Kerriot is offering Tho chamber the Choice of paying up and preserving Franco British Solidarity or isolation which would destroy any Chunco of re Lief especially As America s note to France although similar to that of Britain did not include a Promise to Caso Tho Burden of Transfer. Reply to France. Washington saturday. Reply ing to the French War debt proposals or. H. L. Stimson said the Ameri can government has not been Able to reach the conclusion that postponement of the december 15 payment from France to America is necessary bar Nus of its effect on Tho problem of re covery. " the president is prepared through whatever Agency May so Chi appropriate to co Operto with Tho French govern ment in surveying Tho entire situation and in considering what Means May to taken to bring about the restoration of stable currencies and Exchange and the revival of Trade and or. Stimson told Tho French ambassador m. Claudel that to believed payment on december 15 would bring about a More favourable situation for later examination of the whole ques Tion. J qualifications anticipated. New York now i York times " Washington correspond ent says it is accepted there that Bri Tain and France will make the debt payments but May attach conditions relating to future negotiations aimed it Tho revision of their debt agree ments. It is not believed that any qualifications Mado with the debt payments will prove seriously complicating fac tors. Lithuania seeks Relief. Thoro docs not appear much Prospect for realisation of the French Topes which Aro reported to be aimed at congressional assent to a plan for in International conference upon Tho whole debt problem should that con template simultaneous negotiation with All Tho debtor Powers. President Hoo ver and or. F. Roosevelt Tho presi dont elect have both declared for Sepa rate debt treatment. Tho list of debtor governments petitioning for Relief was increased to seven to Day when Lithuania submitted a note asking Foi suspension of payment of the 92,386 dollars duo. Views of parliament. London desire for a Debato on Tho question of Tho payment of the debt instalment is being debated among a Section of members of the House of commons. No decision is Likely to to taken on this matter until to Morrow. While Tho government is understood to recognise that a Adobato before Tho Christmas recess is desirable it would prefer to postpone it. The labor party while not opposing payment would prefer that Tho House of commons should have an Opportunity of expressing its views before payment is made and there will to fur ther conversations on this subject to Morrow. Special meeting of Cabinet. It is generally expected that Tho note to be sent to America by Tho British government will be of a character unlikely to necessitate a further reply from Tho United states. It May be unnecessary to Call a special meeting of Cabinet it which Tho government s formal decision to make payment of Tho december instalment in Gold will be recorded. The usual weekly meeting of Cabinet will take place on wednes Day. How Germany was treated. Sir Arthur Salter addressing the National peace Council s conference yesterday put Tho Point of View of american citizens on Hie War debts but urged that the enlightened self interest of Tho United states demanded cancellation or reduce iou. _ Tho european creditors of reparations at Tho Lausanne conform acc had commuted Germany s remaining liability for a final fixed capital sum and had provided that this should to Dis charged in a Way which would never involve an annual payment by Ger Many of Moro than about one eighth of what was required by the Young plan of Turco years ago. That was not anything but enlightened Solf interest. Peace and Progress. He was Suro if America acted similarly it would Provo of Immons advantage to Tho whole world and to it self. If Tho people of Britain would look at Tho situation coolly and sympathetically they should at least under stand even though they might Tygret America s reluctance. Pc co and economie Progress depended in every a Pioro upon co operation Between America and Europe and trading depended upon Public temper and the psychology of Tho Peoples of Tho two continents. One of Many problems. As president Hoover had pointed out War debts Wero Only Ono of i Many a pressing problems. Others Werc now. Oct sea in Tho preparations Foi the world economic conference. There they should at firstly world policy of controlled relation secondly they must Ristoro and Reform Tho world s Erodito system.
