HC Deb 22 February 1922 vol 150 cc1892-3 The following question stood on the Order Paper in the name of Mr. G. BARNES: 46. To ask the Prime Minister if he has received the resolutions, among others, unanimously adopted by the Glasgow City Council and the Glasgow Trade Council, urging the Government to grant relief to the non-Bolshevist Russian people stricken by famine; has his attention been called to the statements made by Sir Benjamin Robertson and Dr. Nansen to the effect that money is required for seed for next harvest which cannot be procured in time by voluntary agency; and whether, having regard to the urgency of the matter, he can now reconsider the whole question with a view to making a grant, and thereby possibly stimulate other Governments to do likewise, so as to help in averting even a greater calamity next year?

Pending further consideration I have been asked to defer this question till next Thursday. May I ask the Prime Minister if he will get someone to attend a meeting to-morrow to be addressed by Sir Benjamin Robertson, so that he may have full information on the matter?
