§ 16. Mr. RAFFAN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can make a statement as to the negotiations between the hon. Member for East Leeds (Mr. O'Grady) and M. Litvinoff with reference to an exchange of prisoners with Soviet Russia?
I regret that I cannot make any statement at the moment, but I hope to do so at the first favourable opportunity.
I think there are about 120 prisoners of war. There are other British civilian subjects who are not exactly prisoners of war.
§ Mr. MACMASTER (by Private Notice)
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the prospect of the release of our prisoners of war in Russia?
