HC Deb 28 July 1924 vol 176 cc1740-1
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, 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?


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?


Yes. Everything dealt with during the negotiations will be referred to.
