asked the Prime Minister whether conversations have commenced in Moscow between representatives of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and His Majesty's Government, and if so, when is he likely to be in a position to make a statement?

21. Mr. Vyvyan Adams

asked the Prime Minister whether he has any statement to make as to the reception of the British plan by the Russian Government?

The only fresh information I can give is that Mr. Strang was due to arrive in Moscow this morning bearing the full instructions sent to guide His Majesty's Ambassador in the future conduct of the negotiations.

Mr. Dalton

If I put down another question on Monday, does the Prime Minister hope to be able to make a fuller statement then?

The Prime Minister

If there is any further information, of course I shall be happy to give it.

Mr. Hannah

Did anyone ever hear of a Russian being in a hurry?
