HC Deb 23 April 1923 vol 163 c23
64. Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the recently announced decision of the Russian co-operative movement to take an active part in the establishment of a world Socialist system of government; and, having regard to the agreement under which a representative of the Soviet Government resides in this country, what action does he propose to take?


I have seen a newspaper report of a manifesto on this subject, said to have been issued by the Committee of the Russian Centrosoyus. In regard to the last part of the question, I am not in a position to make a statement.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is it not a fact that the Centrosoyus trading in London is a British company, and has nothing whatever to do with the political committee in Moscow?
