§ Sir A. POWNALL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is yet in a position to make a statement with regard to the 11 Russian Baptists?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
I have now heard from His Majesty s Ambassador in Moscow, who states that he is not in a position to make independent inquiries in regard to these Soviet citizens. I have accordingly reached the conclusion that no action by His Majesty's Government in this matter is either expedient or possible.
