§ Sir J. POWER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has any statement to make on the subject of a commercial treaty with Russia?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The hon. Member will have seen in Command Paper 3552 the text of a temporary Commercial Agreement which has been concluded with the Soviet Government with the object of regulating the commercial relations of the two countries until such time as a permanent treaty can be concluded. Negotiations for such a permanent treaty are being instituted immediately.
