HC Deb 07 January 1913 vol 46 c975

asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether he will make representations to the Russian Government with a view to securing to Jews who are British subjects rights of travel and temporary residence within the Russian Empire equal to those enjoyed by other British subjects?


I have nothing to add to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for the North-Western Division of Manchester on the 17th October last to the effect that no steps have been taken by His Majesty's Government in the matter, as unless it can be shown that British subjects of the Jewish faith are treated less favourably than those of other countries, there is no right under treaty to intervene.
