HC Deb 14 July 1920 vol 131 cc2375-6
46. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister whether the State Department at Washington has removed trade restrictions between the United States and Soviet Russia; and whether His Majesty's Government will place British merchants on the same footing as American merchants by removing trade restrictions between this country and Soviet Russia?


In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for East Leyton on the 13th instant; the answer to the second part of the question is dependent on the result of the trade negotiations with the Russian Delegation.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Does the right hon. Gentleman not see that while we are dawdling with this question the Americans and other neutral countries are capturing the markets?


No, I do not see that.
