HC Deb 09 December 1931 vol 260 cc1853-4
44. Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the President of the Board of Trade what armaments, or machinery that can be utilised for making armaments, have been supplied to the Government of the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics since the date mentioned in the reply given on this subject on 24th June last?

Major COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

As the data will have to be specially extracted, I am having a statement prepared for the five months ended 30th November showing the exports to Russia of arms, ammuni- tion and military and naval stores, and I will send it to the Noble Lady as soon as possible.

Duchess of ATHOLL

Will the reply show whether any export credit facilities have been granted for any of the purposes mentioned?


I will make a note of that point.


Will the hon. and gallant Member consider the possibility of publishing the answer in the OFFICIAL REPORT as well as sending it to the Noble Lady?
