Notes"Mr Hudson's Conversations with Dr, Wohltat. - Reports which appeared in the British
press during the week-end July 22-23, that the British Government had proposed a loan to
Germany (the figure of 1,000,000,000 pounds was mentioned) as the basis of an ultimate
settlement between the two countries, were the subject of a statement by Mr. Chamberlain in
the House of Commons on July 24. The question arose out of the admission of Mr. R.S.
Hudson, the Secretary to the Department of Overseas Trade, made to several newspapers, that
on July 20 he had discussed with Dr. Wohltat, of the German Ministry of Economics, the
conditions on which Great Britain would co-operate financially with Germany with the object
of helping her back to a peace economy, provided that Germany would return to peaceful
methods. According to the Press statement it was suggested to Dr Wohltat that Germany
should first agree to a substantial and controlled measure of disarmament and to her
withdrawal from Czecho-Slovakia. In return she would receive an international loan and
become a partner with the other Powers in developing the colonial resources in Africa under
some form of condominium. ... [Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.3657]
