ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the foreign aid bill Marshall Plan extension regarding the foreign aid policy of the U.S. The British government has asked the U.S. State Department to confer on ways in which the U.S. might help solve Great Britain's supposedly desperate problem of her war-created debts to India, Pakistan, Egypt and British Commonwealth countries. These debts exist in the form of sterling deposits which are blocked, that is, can be used for the purchase of British goods or for meager conversion into dollars only by permission of the British government.
