§ 25. Sir A. POWNALL
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he can give any information as to the negotiations for reciprocal trading arrangements between France and Russia?
§ Major COLVILLE (Secretary, Department of Overseas Trade)
References to these negotiations have appeared in the Press, but I have no official information of the progress, if any, which has been made.
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Has the attention of the Overseas Secretary been called to the report of the British Chambers of Commerce to the effect that export credits to Russia should be reviewed, and does he not think, in view of that fact, that the question of export credits should be reviewed?
§ Major COLVILLE
I am fully aware of the report mentioned, and the whole matter is under consideration.
§ Mr. BUCHANAN
Does the hon. and gallant Gentleman not think that it is time this dictation by the Chambers of Commerce was stopped?
