HC Deb 11 April 1940 vol 359 c717
89. Mr. Davidson

asked the Prime Minister what trade negotiations are now under consideration with Russia; and has he any statement to make?

Mr. Butler

As I said yesterday, a suggestion on this subject was recently made by the Soviet Ambassador and the question is being considered in all its aspects.

Mr. Davidson

Has the question been considered in all its aspects only by our own Government, or have any negotiations taken place with the Russian representatives on this question?

Mr. Butler

The Soviet Ambassador made a suggestion, and that is now being considered by the various Departments of the Government.
