PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.)' COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MAY 7, 19-17 Britain Asks War Debt Reduction .:_ England to Regard Wartime Borrowing As Joint Expenditure LOXECX, May 1. (UP)—A high government source said today that! Britain will refuse in forthcoming j negotiations with creditor nations to recognize ail her wartime borrowing as legitimate debt and will] be "very tough" about getting the" balance scaled down. | ^ *'A large uro|K>rtion of these debts we feel should be regarded ^ joint' expenditure in a joint effort," the source said. He said Chancellor cf the Exchequer Hugh Dalton's statement last night that 3,0:0,003.Cca (S12.CO-),- COS.CCai sterling balances held by. Britain's wartime credits must I.e 1 scaled down was "a warning to people with sterling balances th.U we are prepared to be very toush.": Dalton called the British war debt tti "unreal, unjust and unsupportable burden." The government source said Britain sought no modification ol the. terms of her American loan. This was negotiated after the war and includes provisions for liquidating lend-lease accounts. He pointed out that under the loan Urms Britain agreed to seek modification of her sterling debts within a year. Mammoth Debts Cited Dalton told the Brazilian Chamber of Commerce last night, "Britain is strong, but one sign of her strength must bs the refusal to t»ke on fantastic commitments which arc beyond her strength and beyond all limits of good sense arid fair play. "These arc our fruits of victory —these vast debts nominally owed by us to those who fought with us in the great inter-allied effort," he said. He said that if lend-lease and mutual aid had been applied among all members of the grand alliance. as they were between Britain and the United States.' "by far the greater part of these debts would never have charged against, us." •Britain's debts included (S5,003.CCO.OCO) to India. 450.- OCO.O:o ($1,800,CCO.COO) to Egypt; Australia. 203.COO.OOO »SOO,C03.<na i: New Zearland, 250.C03.0CO ($800.- C020GO)- Eire, 250,COO,COa (S1.0:o.- OOo'.OCO); Norway, 80,000,000 (J320.- CCO,0:0): Argentina, 120,000,030 ({4K>.COO,CuO); and Brazil 65.C03.000 $2CO,000,OCO>.
