§ 112. Mr. W. J. Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make it a condition of any new treaty of friendship and alliance with 69W the U.S.S.R. that Russian women who have married British subjects shall be free to join their husbands in this country.
§ Mr. Bevin
No. Much as I sympathise with the unfortunate position of these wives and their husbands, and with the desire of the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. J. Brown) to help them, I do not think this is an appropriate question to be included in the negotiations for the revision of the Anglo-Soviet Treaty.
