granted by the Italian Government to the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics in the Russo-Italian trade agreement, signed in the early months of the year?

Major COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

The hon. Member will find the information for which he asks in the issue of the "Board of Trade Journal" of 7th May last, a copy of which I am sending to him. The details correspond with those given in the official text of the agreement which has been furnished since by His Majesty's Ambassador at Rome.


Will the hon. and gallant Gentleman not convey the opinion of this House to the Government, that owing to tariffs trade is getting worse here, and that the Government might support the opening up of Russia on more friendly terms than hon. Members opposite have favoured during the past year?
