HC Deb 07 October 1909 vol 11 cc2175-6
Lord BALCARRES (for Major Anstruther-Gray)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has yet received the Report he promised to ask for two months ago from the British Embassy at St. Petersburg as to whether the German subjects inheriting land in Poland were allowed 10 years to dispose of their land while British subjects are only allowed three years; and whether he has succeeded in obtaining as favourable treatment for British as is given to German subjects with regard to land owned by them?


His Majesty's Embassy are in communication with the Russian Government on the subject, but I have not yet received a report.
