HC Deb 14 May 1924 vol 173 c1403W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government have received any information, official or unofficial, indicating the conclusion since the beginning of the year of any business enterprise between groups of British business men and delegates of the Soviet Republic?


I have been asked to reply. If the hon. Member refers to the trading organisations of the Soviet Union in this country, I understand that since the beginning of the year business has been arranged between them and British firms for the sale of British goods, but I have not received information as to the conclusion of particular contracts of special importance.
