HC Deb 02 April 1940 vol 359 c24
44. Mr. Arthur Henderson

asked the Prime Minister to what extent Russia is co-operating with Germany under the terms of the recently concluded agreements made between them?

Mr. Butler

The degree of co-operation between the Soviet and German Governments appears to be most marked in the economic sphere.

Mr. Henderson

Is it a fact that the Russian Government have indicated their willingness to enter into trade negotiations with His Majesty's Government?

Mr. Butler

I should require notice of that Question.
