asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any satisfactory progress has yet been made in the matter of exchanging scientific information between Great Britain and the Soviet Union; and whether arrangements can now be concluded for the exchange of scientific missions between the two countries.849W
§ Mr. Law
An Anglo-American-Canadian medical mission visited the Soviet Union in the summer of 1943, and an Anglo-American medical mission is there at the present time. Among the items of information now being communicated to the Soviet authorities is the present state of research into the clinical uses of penicillin. The question of further contact for the purpose of exchanging scientific information between Great Britain and the Soviet Union is being pursued.
