§ 43. Mr. Thorne
asked the Prime Minister what is the number of square miles of 24 land and lakes that have been annexed by Russia from Finland under the peace settlement?
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Butler)
It is impossible to give exact figures until the frontiers have been delimited, but I understand that approximately 41,900 square kilometres of land and lakes have been ceded by Finland to the Soviet Union.
§ Mr. Thorne
Does that answer mean that Russia has annexed more land and lakes than the square mileage of Scotland?
