§ 16 and 17. Captain Viscount CURZON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (1) whether the draft Commercial Treaty with Russia now completed; and is it proposed to submit it for signature by the Russian Delegation before the House rises for the Recess;
(2) whether the rights reserved to the British Government or British nationals, 1741 under Article X of the Krassin Trade Agreement of 1921, are maintained in their entirety in the new draft Commercial Treaty with Russia, and without liability to any charge of any kind?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I regret that I am unable to make any statement on these subjects, in advance of the general statement on the results of the Anglo-Soviet negotiations, which the House has been promised before the Recess.
§ Viscount CURZON
Will the points alluded to in Questions 16 and 17 be specifically dealt with when the right hon. Gentleman tells us the whole story about the Russian negotiations?
