§ Mr. Parkin
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now make a statement about the renewal of trade negotiations with the Soviet Union.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
I am glad to say that it has now been agreed to resume forthwith the trade negotiations which were suspended last July. I accordingly propose to leave for Moscow tomorrow to open the resumed discussions, and hope to return early next week, if necessary leaving a team in Moscow to continue the negotiations.
