§ 46. Mr. LUMLEY
asked the Prime Minister when he will be in a position to make a statement on the progress of the negotiations with the Soviet delegation?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Ponsonby)
I have nothing to add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House to the supplementary questions asked by the hon. Members for Kingston-upon-Thames and Grantham on the 13th of May, and to the replies given by the Prime Minister yesterday.
§ Captain Viscount CURZON
Does the hon. Gentleman expect that the Prime Minister, before we rise for the Whitsuntide Recess, will be able to give us any idea what progress is being made?
§ Mr. LUMLEY
Can the hon. Gentleman give us any idea of the length of time the negotiations are likely to take?
§ Mr. PONSONBY
The negotiations naturally cover a very large field, and it would be unreasonable to expect an announcement just yet.
§ Mr. BECKER
Has the hon. Gentleman received any apology from the Russian Government for the attacks they have made?
