§ 57. Sir W. Teeling
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress has been made in the discussions concerning Baltic Bonds in Moscow; whether the British delegation have returned to this country; and what is to be the next step.
§ Mr. Mathew
The group of Foreign Office officials have now returned from Moscow where they held 11 meetings with Soviet officials. The discussions were confined to technical matters of documentation concerning a wide range of post-1939 claims on both sides, including those in respect of Baltic Bonds. They took place in a friendly and businesslike atmosphere. The report submitted by the officials is now18W under consideration by the Foreign Office and the other interested Departments of Her Majesty's Government, and a decision on the next step will be taken as soon as possible.
