§ 52. Mr. Blenkinsop
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will reconsider the question of granting long-term credits to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics for orders placed in Great Britain, in view of facilities offered in West Germany in connection with shipbuilding orders placed there.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
No; the Anglo-Soviet Trade Agreement was based on the clear understanding that normal E.C.G.D. facilities would be adequate for the expansion of trade.
