HC Deb 23 May 1938 vol 336 c846
58. Sir R. Clarry

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the increase in imports from Russia, and the decrease in exports of British goods to Russia, in the year 1937, he is prepared to give the necessary notice to terminate the Trade Agreement made with that country in 1934?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

I am unable to add to the statement which was made earlier this year that the whole question of the commercial relations between the two countries is under review. In this connection my right hon. Friend is receiving on 26th May a deputation from industrial and commercial organisations interested in the trade between this country and the Soviet Union.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

Will my right hon. Friend hear in mind, in these negotiations with Russia, the necessity, as we see it, of increasing the export of British herring to Russia?
