HC Deb 08 July 1920 vol 131 c1645
59. Mr. PALMER

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the statement of M. Lenin, that the usefulness of trade unions as independent organisations has come to an end, he will make it a condition precedent to the resumption of negotiations with M. Krassin that the Soviet Government shall give an undertaking to respect and preserve the rights of the trade unions of Russia?


The answer is in the negative.
