8. Lieut.-Colonel Sir F. HALL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the Government have been advised of the conditions upon which the Italian Government has agreed to grant recognition to the present Russian administration; and, if so, will he state what those conditions are, particularly as regards the payment of debts, the observance of pre-revolution treaties, and the suppression of Communist propaganda?
§ Mr. PONSONBY
The Secretary of State has not received a copy of the Treaty recently concluded between Russia and Italy, and until he is in possession of it, he is not in a position to add to the statement he made in his speech on 14th February.
Sir F. HALL
Will the Government take steps to obtain from the Italian Government the conditions on which the recognition has been agreed to, and any other points that should be known to the House and the country?
