§ 2. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs which are the States covered by the reference in paragraph 11 of his Note to the United States Government to some States whose Governments have not been universally recognised?
As I stated yesterday in reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) I am not. in a position to make any further statement at present.
Is it not possible for the right hon. Gentleman to tell us whether or not Soviet Russia is included in this reference?
It is quite contrary to usage to elaborate or comment upon a Note which is still under consideration by the Government to which it has been addressed.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is it not also very unusual for unspecified countries to be referred to, in regard to whom we refuse to sign a treaty not to make war?
