HC Deb 05 May 1930 vol 238 cc614-5
55. Sir F. HALL

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the number of persons now in Russia attached to the British diplomatic and consular services; and whether such persons are allowed full freedom to worship as they think fit or whether they are subject to the restrictions on religious worship imposed by the Soviet Government?


There are at present 12 persons employed in His Majesty's Embassy and consular establishments in the Soviet Union. So far as I am aware, they are perfectly free to worship as they think fit.
