62. Sir F. HALL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Government is now satisfied that the Russian Government is fufilling in a satisfactory manner their undertaking to cease all subversive propaganda work in this country and in British Dominions; and, if not, will he state what steps are being taken to enforce compliance with this obligation, particularly in the case of persons operating under the shelter of the Russian trade delegation?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Austen Chamberlain)
His Majesty's Government have not considered it desirable or useful to repeat the warnings contained in the Notes of my predecessor and myself, but this must not be taken to mean that they are satisfied that propaganda has ceased.
Sir F. HALL
May we take it that the right hon. Gentleman is satisfied that the Russians are not carrying out the obligation they have entered into?
§ Mr. MACKINDER
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether there is any evidence that any members of the trade delegation are doing this?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
I do not think I have any evidence that I can produce that any members of the trade delegation are doing so.
Captain ARTHUR EVANS
Has the right hon. Gentleman any evidence that the Third International carries out any of this propaganda?
