HC Deb 31 May 1934 vol 290 cc358-9
51. Lieut.-Colonel WINDSOR-CLIVE

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has made any representations to the Soviet Government with regard to the events which occurred when the trawler "Sculcoats" went aground off the coast of Lapland on 10th March?


His Majesty's Ambassador at Moscow has been in communication with the Soviet Government on this matter; but I am not aware of any ground for representations against the action of the Soviet authorities, which appears to have been in accordance with Soviet law.

Lieut.-Colonel WINDSOR-CLIVE

Can my right hon. Friend say whether it is the fact, as stated in the Press, that after the crew of this trawler had taken to their boats they endeavoured to return on board in order to recover their belongings and were prevented from doing so?


I am afraid that I cannot answer that question without notice.
