HC Deb 25 February 1924 vol 170 cc15-21

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state which were the Treaties in force between Great Britain and Russia, before the Revolution of 1917, which have not lapsed by denunciation or become obsolete before that date?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to the hon. Member for Erdington on 14th February, to which I have nothing to add. I regret that, owing to an oversight, the list of Treaties mentioned in it was not circulated at the time, but I will circulate it with my present reply.

The list of Treaties in as follows:

I.—Bilateral Treaties and Conventions.

II.—Multilateral Treaties, etc.

* Russia acceded, 22nd May, 1867.

* Russia acceded, 31st May, 1899.

* Ceases to be in force from date of coming into operation of Convention of 20th November, 1920.

* Not ratified by Russia.
