HC Deb 03 April 1922 vol 152 cc1827-8
46. Mr. LYLE

asked the Prime Minister whether the Genoa Conference will take into consideration the continued depreciation of the Russian currency; whether he is aware that the Soviet printing presses are working day and night turning out paper money; and that, although truck-loads of notes are being sent away to new-destinations, it is found impossible to meet the existing demand?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As to the second and third, I fear I have no information as to the arrangements adopted by the Soviet authorities.


Will the Prime Minister, when he takes into consideration proposals for promoting trade with Russia, bear in mind the great possibilities of the British printing press makers?
