asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has reason to believe that any of the plate formerly in the British Embassy at Petrograd is still in existence; whether he has any information as to what became of it after its removal to the Dutch Legation at Petrograd or its present whereabouts; and whether he has asked the Russian Government to assist him in tracing and recovering this plate?

There have been no developments in regard to this matter subsequent to those described in my reply to the hon. and gallant Member for Chelmsford (Colonel Howard-Bury) on 10th July last. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
