asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any further statement to make on the prospect of release from imprisonment by the Hungarian Government of Mr. Edgar Sanders, in view of the recent release of Mr. Vogeler.

No. The Hungarian Government are aware that His Majesty's Government are ready to resume normal trading relations with them as soon as Mr. Sanders is released, but they have so far refused our offer. I can only hope that their decision to release Mr. Vogeler may indicate a change in their attitude towards the release of Mr. Sanders.
