WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1981 BLYTHEV1LLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAQB British Expected to Reassert Intent To Carry on Trade with Soviet Union Obituaries LONDON, Aug. 15. <#}—JSlr Hart-4 ley Shawcross. president of the Board of Trade, Is expected toda> to reaffirm Britain's stand that East-West trade Is vital and she has no intention of Joining any economic blockade against Russia. Sir Hartley's foreign trade policy h^utline Is to be made apparently in Answer to American critics of Britain's Insistence on doing at least some business with Communist countries. But he doubtless will make It plain that Britain does not intend to allow war-potential goods to reach the Reds. Britain has just concluded a deal with Russia, whereby the Soviets promise to deliver $28,000,500 worth of timber with ah option of supply- Ing a further $14,000,000 worth with i n an undlsclose d pe rlod. British Start Talks Qualified sources said the British also are starting talks for the purchase of nearly 1,000,000 tons of Soviet coarse grains—corn, barley and oats—by mid-1952. Over the past year Russia has delivered 750,000 tons of coarse grains valued at around $42,000,000. Britain's view Is that this sort of trading—particularly .the. purchase of timber and grains and -other eastern European food products- is indispensable and that a cut- down of such dealings would harm Britain as much, if not more, than it would the Russians. GoTernment Worries This country always has claimed that the main purpose of her dealings with Iron curtain countries is jjo obtain materials she can't get JHlsewhere. But the government has become worried over growing American official and congressional reaction to these dealings. The tTS. government ha* ex pressed concern over Russia's buildup of a sizeable trade balance with Britain amounting to nearly $50,000,000 (17,000,000 pounds) In the first half of this year/ Most In Wood and Rubber Of Russia'* total purchases In th« British-led sterling area, three quarters has been made up of woo *nd rubber; and other material include tin. cocoa and tea.
