§ 42. Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE
asked the Prime Minister whether any steps have been taken to formulate the general peace treaty alluded to in the preamble of the Russian Trade Agreement; and, if so, as no state of war exists between any part of Russia and this country, he can state what is the object of drawing up a peace treaty?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
With regard to the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I returned to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) on the 11th inst. In regard to the last part of the question, I would refer him to the preamble of the Trade Agreement, which states in general terms the purpose of a general peace 1290 treaty, and to the declaration of recognition of claims which is appended to the Agreement.
