HC Deb 26 February 1936 vol 309 c468W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what, if any, reply was received from the acting Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in reply to the oral protest made by the British congress of the Communist International of subversive activity by the Comintern in the British Isles?


The Acting People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs informed His Majesty's Ambassador that the Soviet Government could admit no responsibility for the activities of the Comintern. It was made clear to M. Krestinski, and to the Soviet Chargé d'Affaires in London at that time, that His Majesty's Government could not accept that contention.
