There were no loans for Argentina tabled for approval or discussed by the IADB board on 24 April 2012. A loan however was discussed on 21 June. The UK representative at the Inter-American Development did not support this loan. The Secretary of State for International Development, my right hon. Friend Mr Mitchell, has not had discussions with the US Government on loans to Argentina.
