§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is the intention of the Government to abandon the claims against the Russian Government for the sinking of the British ship "Knight Commander."
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (SIR EDWARD GREY, Northumberland, Berwick)
The Answer is in the negative.
§ MR. HART-DAVIES (Hackney, N.)
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a year has elapsed since the matter was referred to the Russian Government? Cannot something be done to expedite a settlement?
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
We have proposed it shall go to arbitration, and I have no doubt that in the long run that course will be adopted.
