55. Lieut.-Colonel Sir F. HALL
asked the Prime Minister whether, before the House rises, an evening can be set aside for the discussion of the present relations of this country with Russia, with special regard to the trade results which have followed from the treaties and agreements now in force, and the extent to which the staff and organisation of the various official Soviet delegations have been used for other than legitimate diplomatic and trading purposes?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
In view of the congestion of public business, I see no prospect of time being given for this discussion.
§ The PRIME MINISTER
There are, unfortunately, many more questions of public importance than time can be found for at present, but it is always open to hon. Members to raise this or any other question on the Adjournment or on the Consolidated Fund Bill.
Sir F. HALL
Does the right hon. Gentleman think there are many questions of much more importance than this insidious propaganda against the interests of the country?
Sir F. HALL
On a point of Order. On a matter of importance such as this, are we not entitled to have an answer whether the Government do not think it-is of sufficient importance?
