Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the question of a settlement of Tsarist Russia's foreign debt was discussed in Anglo-Soviet negotiations on post-war Anglo-Soviet trade; and what credit has been suggested by the U.S.S.R. in respect of British post-war exports to the U.S.S.R.

Mr. Law

The answer to the first part of the Question is "No, Sir." The answer to the second part is that in these negotiations the Soviet Government have made no specific proposals with regard to credit.
