asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been called to the statement of M. Latvinoff that His Majesty's Government are now refusing to admit to this country Russian buyers and sellers, representative of economic organisations, unless voucher? for by particular English firms, thereby committing them in advance to dealing with these particular firms; and what is the reason for this restriction?
I have been asked to reply. I have not seen the statement to which the hon. Member refers. No such restriction as is suggested is imposed on the admission of bonâ fide Russian buyers and sellers who desire to visit this country under the terms of the Trade Agreement with Russia.
