asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to a statement made by a member of the Russian trade commission at Copenhagen to the effect that six ships are now ready loaded in the harbour at Petrograd with cargoes for export; and what stops are being taken by His Majesty's Government to carry out the decision of the Allied Council to resume trade with Russia?
I have seen in the Press a statement to the effect indicated in the first part of the question. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on this subject to the hon. and gallant Members for Central Hull and Finchley on the 21st instant.
