§ 2. Sir ROBERT THOMAS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information regarding the number of British subjects in Russia; and whether, in view of the state of feeling in that country towards Great. Britain, he has any ground for apprehension regarding their personal safety?
I am informed that there are at present approximately 400 British subjects in the whole of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. As regards the second part of the question; His Majesty's Acting Chargé d'Affaires before leaving Moscow received an assurance from M. Litvinov that British subjects remaining in Russia, would not be interfered with.
