HC Deb 11 April 1928 vol 162 cc1181-2

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the trading agreement with Russia is still in force; if so, what is the date of its expiration if it remains in force until six months' notice is given by one party; if such notice has been given; and what is the intention of the Government as to the future of this agreement?


The trade agreement is still in force. The conditions under which notice of termination may be given are contained in Article 13, to which I would refer the hon. Member. No such notice has yet been given. As regards the last part of the question, I can only refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 9th April to the hon. Member for the Scottish Universities.
