HC Deb 01 December 1930 vol 245 cc1777-8
15. Sir W. DAVISON

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the urgency of the matter, he will telegraph to His Majesty's Ambassador in Moscow asking for a Report on the result of the representations which he was directed to make to the Soviet Government on the 2nd November last with regard to the arbitral award in favour of Lena Goldfields, Limited?

20. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received any indication from His Majesty's ambassador in Moscow as to when he is likely to receive a reply to his representations on the subject of the Lena Goldfields award?


His Majesty's Ambassador has already, on my telegraphic instructions, urged upon the Soviet Government the importance which I attach to this case. He has been assured that it is being closely studied by the competent authorities of the Soviet Government.


Are there any competent authorities in the Soviet Government?
