HC Deb 08 May 1922 vol 153 c1782
63. Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government have any information as to the reported Treaty between Germany and the Ukraine Soviet Republic, under which Treaty a German syndicate was to have the monopoly of the exploitation of the industrial and mineral resources of the Ukraine?


The answer is in the negative.

Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE

Can the Noble Lord say how it is that no information has been received here, in view of the fact that this Treaty has been reported in the French Press last week?


No information has been received here.

Lieut.-Colonel CROFT

In view of the fact that these reports have been made to all the Press of the World, does the Noble Lord not see the importance of inquiring whether Messrs. Krupps have started operations?


I will convey the hon. and gallant Member's views to the Secretary of State.
