§ 58. Mr. GARDNER (for Mr. THORNE)
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he can give the House any information in connection with the order for seven timber-carrying steamers which has been placed in this country by the Russian Government?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Dr. Burgin)
I have been asked to reply. My hon. Friend regrets that he is unable to give the hon. Member information beyond that which has already appeared in the Press, but he understands that the Press reports as to the number and value of the vessels involved are substantially accurate.
