HC Deb 29 November 1922 vol 159 cc673-4
45. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Prime Minister the terms on which His Majesty's Government is prepared to recognise the Soviet Government of Russia?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Bonar Law)

The main conditions are the recognition of debts, restitution of property or effective compensation and cessation from political propaganda.


Has any answer whatever been received from Russia since these conditions were laid down at the Hague Conference?


I must have notice of that question. I do not recall any.

Commander BELLAIRS

Is it the settled policy of His Majesty's Government not to meddle in the internal affairs of any country?
