HC Deb 05 August 1924 vol 176 c2741
59. Mr. LUMLEY

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the advisory committee, appointed under the Trade Facilities Act, have reached any decisions with regard to the proposals placed before them by the Russian Government which, it is claimed, would involve placing of orders in this country for manufactured goods?


I regret that I cannot add anything to the answer I gave on this subject to the hon. Member for Barrow-in-Furness on the 7th July last.


Is it correct, as stated in the Press to-day, that the trade negotiations between this country and Russia have broken down?


My hon. and gallant Friend had better await to-day's Debate.
