§ 10. Wing Commander Bullus
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why his officers did not allow Russians on the training ship "Tovarisch," which put into Plymouth recently, to land.
§ Wing Commander Bullus
That reply will clear up the confusion caused by newspaper reports, but does not the right hon. Gentleman think that we should take advantage of the far too, rare opportunities to extend the hand of friendship to the Russians?
§ Mr. Ede
If there had been any desire on the part of the master of the ship that shore leave should be granted we would have done what we could to assist him, and if any sailors had got off the ship in spite of the armed guard I have no doubt the hand of friendship would have been extended to them.
§ Mr. H. Hynd
Is it not consistent with the name of this ship that there should be no obstacle to comradeship?
