HC Deb 02 November 1939 vol 352 c2129W
Mr. Simmonds

asked the Minister of Supply whether he has received from the Russian Government any formal assurance that rubber supplied by this country to Russia under current trade agreements will not be re-exported to Germany?

Mr. Burgin

No, Sir. But, as I informed my hon. Friend the Member for West Leeds (Mr. V. Adams) on 17th October, the quantities involved are not large in relation to the quantities required by the U.S.S.R. for its own use.
