§ Mr. R. A. TAYLOR
(by Private Notice) asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is in a position to make a statement with regard to the extension of Export Credits to Russia?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. William Graham)
As part of the employment policy of my right hon. Friend, the Lord Privy Seal, the Government have decided that the Advisory Committee set up by the Acts governing the Export Credits Guarantee Scheme should be free from the 1st August to consider applications in respect of transactions with Russia.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
So far as I know at present, there is no question of changing the personnel of the Advisory Committee.
§ Mr. ALBERY
May I ask whether this was a condition imposed by the Russian Government before considering the resumption of diplomatic relations?
